"With the expansion in all the different businesses it was clear that a restructure was required to ensure our continued success."
Sirius Property Finance, the high net worth division of Brightstar Financial, has expanded its central London office and made two senior hires.
Sirius works with clients across all sectors of the real estate market looking for debt or equity funding arrangements. They look at transactions from £1million upwards across residential and commercial investment mortgages, development finance and bridging loans.
Robert Collins was previously looking after the Brightstar Commercial & BTL teams as well as Sirius but, due to increased business volumes and growing team numbers, is now moving full time to the London offices at the Royal Exchange.
Robert 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 has also been recognised for his role as a founding member of Sirius and has been promoted to Director.
He commented: “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.”
The central London team is further strengthened by recruitment of Manoj Chitroda who has held previous roles in both banking and finance broking.
