This comes after the specialist lender enjoyed record growth in 2018.
- B&C roundtable: surviving a heated bridging market and the rise of regional lending
- Ortus promotes Richard King to head of sales
- Ortus appoints two new BDMs after record year
Speaking to Bridging & Commercial, Jon Salisbury, managing director at Ortus (pictured above), said: “During 2018, our loan book smashed through £100m, which was a major milestone for us.
“This was achieved with very little recruitment activity, so our recent decision to hire two new BDMs is an indication of the ambitions we have for 2019.
“Our next target is to grow our loan book to £250m.
“We expect our increased sales force to play a key role in our growth, enabling us to take our award-winning product range to more brokers.
“We also expect to widen our offering to brokers with new product releases during 2019.”
Jon added that Ortus would also be making some important announcements in the very near future about regional expansion.
