The UK-North team will be headed up by regional director John Hewitt.
“The appetite for alternative finance remains high in Scotland, as well as the wider North of the UK,” said John.
“In order to meet this demand, we were keen to expand our team in the region, which will in turn allow us to serve a greater number of businesses and property developers.
“Rory and Duncan are excellent additions to our growing team.
“Both are experienced individuals with excellent track records, and I’m confident they will support us in our mission to become the leading provider of P2P finance in Scotland and the North of England.”
