Signature Private Finance hits £100m lending milestone




Signature Private Finance has reached its £100m lending target ahead of schedule.

The target was set by Tony Gilbertson, CEO at Signature (pictured above), when he was appointed to the role in 2016.

The principal lender has added new offices in Cardiff and Edinburgh over the past three years in a bid to give brokers and developers access to team members with knowledge of the local markets.

Tony said: “Hitting a lending target before the deadline I set almost three years ago is very satisfying.

“But we recognise this is just a milestone on a much longer journey that reflects the strength of our offering.

“We have listened to our clients and shaped the Signature service accordingly; we’ve cut the time significantly from indicative terms to drawdown, often stepping in at the last minute with loans in days to rescue deals at risk from high street lenders changing their minds or indeed their terms.

“A hands-on proactive service from a team with direct experience of developing property ensures we understand what brokers and their clients are trying to achieve.

“There is so much more to every deal than just a list of figures on a balance sheet.”

Tony revealed that it had invested significant time and expense into developing an innovative bespoke automated platform — which is based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM — to reduce the time taken to go from enquiry to indicative terms and valuation to drawdown.

“The team here at Signature really understands the need to help brokers and developers unlock the potential in property; speeding up and simplifying the process without missing any steps will go a long way to making that happen and ensure Signature continues to grow and succeed.”
