The Pilot Fish Academy attracts 950 sign-ups in first month




Specialist finance brokerage Pilot Fish has announced that 950 people have signed up to The Pilot Fish Academy since its launch on 1st June.

Some 320 participants have been drawn to its Complete Guide to Bridging Finance course, and 450 are actively enrolled in its Complete Guide to Buy, Refurb, Refinance programme.

The academy’s Complete Guide to Development Finance module — which launches on Monday 6th July — has already pre-enrolled 200 people.

The online classes are free to sign up to.

“[The courses] have provided great knowledge in terms of the lender’s perspective [with] regard to bridging, which is so important for planning and assessing deals — I will now be much quicker in my assessments,” one attendee commented.

Alice Williams (pictured above) — who was promoted from head of property finance to director at Pilot Fish last month, told B&C that her new role will see her continue to increase the brokerage’s presence at events and on social media, and work to build the free finance education arm. 

“I have a number of smaller projects also in the pipeline and cannot wait to see these come to fruition over the next 12 months,” she added.

Richard Jones, managing director at Pilot Fish, stated that since Alice joined the company a little over two years ago, she has worked tirelessly to build its social media presence. 

“She has helped to deliver over £50m of property deals in the last year, in addition to completing her CeMap qualifications, enabling the property team to diversify their offering. 

“I am delighted that she will be joining the directors to drive business forward and proud that this creates a 60% female-led board.” 

The courses can be found on Pilot Fish Academy.
