Pluto Finance reveals expansion plans

Pluto Finance is aiming to relocate to a larger office and bolster its team.

The specialist lender — which recently broadened its bridging offering — aims to hire a minimum of five new members of staff within the next six months.

In an exclusive interview with Bridging & Commercial, Justin Faiz, co-founder and partner at Pluto Finance (pictured above), stated that in addition to the recent appointment of Simon Chapman, Pluto would be aiming to bring in a couple of other “well-known” hires.

“We're beefing up the team.

“More good originators and more good credit analysts will be joining … both across bridging and development lending.

“Over the next three to six months we are looking to hire at least five more people.

“…We will [also] probably need to move to a bigger office … as we continue to expand the team, but we'll stay around the Mayfair area.”

In terms of entering new markets, Justin explained that Pluto would have its “eye on new horizons”.

“We've just spent a lot of time getting substantial additional hire power for development and bridging lending, so priority number one is to deploy that sensibly into the market.

“…If you look at what we don't have — that would be nice to have — we don't have a BTL offering [and] a build-to-hold offering, that would be nice [to have], but that's stuff to work on next year.”
