In its 10th anniversary year, and following its most successful year to date, Ludgate Finance is delighted to announce the appointment of business consultant Ian Fitzjohn, as the company actively works to extend its services to other markets and regions of the UK.
This appointment takes the Ludgate Finance team to seven Associates in addition to the three founding Directors.
Ludgate Finance is a specialist advisor in the direct lending and Peer-to-Peer sector with an unrivalled track record in arranging funding for UK businesses, placing 66 deals totalling £30.7m in 2016 alone.
Associates are supported by the company to identify businesses who would benefit from alternative finance options and introduce them to expert support.
Director Steve Grice said:
“Demand for alternative finance continues to grow, as does the size of the funding Ludgate Finance is able to secure for its clients. New developments in the market such as overdraft funding and fast finance means we have to constantly be on the ball for our clients".
“We want to build on our success and develop a team across the country, but crucially we will only work with the right people. That means we will only grow our network of associates as we find finance professionals who meet our exacting standards of entrepreneurialism, professionalism and knowledge.”
“Ian certainly fits this criteria; an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Bankers and having spent 22 years as a Relationship Director with Lloyds Commercial Banking, Ian has extensive experience in the business finance sector winning Bank Manager of the Year in 2014.
"Now working as an independent business consultant, Ian will be able to extend his advisory service to include direct lending and peer-to-peer funding options.”
