Sirius Property Finance, a division of Brightstar, is expands its London office.
The business works with clients across all sectors of the real estate market looking for debt or equity funding arrangements. It deals with transactions from £1 million upwards across residential and commercial investment mortgages, development finance and bridging loans mainly in the UK, but also with links to funders in Europe and North America.
Robert Collins, who was previously looking after the Brightstar commercial and buy-to-let teams as well as Sirius, is now moving full time to the London offices at the Royal Exchange.
Collins (pictured) said: “With the expansion in all the different businesses it was clear that a restructure was required to ensure our continued success. I am very excited to be concentrating on the Sirius business full time now and it also means that I can devote much more time to actually writing business, which wasn’t always the case with three separate divisions to manage.”
As part of this restructure Nicholas Christofi, a founding member of Sirius, becomes a director.
He said: “Sirius was at the forefront of my move over to Brightstar and I am delighted to be working with some of the best advisers in the industry and establishing the division as one of the premier high net worth property financiers in the UK.”
In addition, Manoj Chitroda joins the central London team, following a career in both banking and finance broking.
