We are delighted to announce the launch of our new property arm, MAF Property Finance.
The team, comprising of six members of staff, will oversee all aspects of property finance, including commercial owner-occupier mortgages, property investment and property development.
MAF Director, Dave Chapman, heads up the team, alongside Andy Keal, Ian Brown, Paul Delaney handling investment and development funding, and Rachel Borlace and Hayley Chapman covering commercial mortgages.
Andy, Ian and Paul have all previously built successful careers at the likes of Yorkshire Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest, respectively.
Rachel has a background in banking and agriculture, whilst Hayley comes from an asset finance background, with having vast experience with owner-occupier businesses.
Speaking about the creation of the division, Dave Chapman said: We are delighted to be launching a dedicated property division on the backcloth of arranging in excess of £140m of property funding in 2018.
“We have grown the team who have over 180 years’ combined experience in the sector and we are looking forward to helping more property clients to grow their business in 2019.”
Director of property finance, Andy Keal, also added: “We are seeing an increasing number of developers working with us and taking the option of 100% development funding and putting the land in as contribution.
“We work with a whole variety of specialist funders and we are able to move quickly to secure the right deal for our clients.”
