Sirius to expand internationally

Specialist brokerage Sirius Property Finance has announced its international expansion with plans to open an office in New Zealand in 2021.

Robert Collins (pictured above), a co-founder of Sirius in the UK, will establish the brokerage and debt advisory service in Auckland in the new year, having identified opportunities in the specialist finance and development markets in both New Zealand and Australia.
“I cut my teeth in property finance down under and, while it is geographically distant, the legal and banking systems share many similarities with the UK,” said Robert.

“On top of this, both New Zealand and Australia have growing populations, increasing need for housing, and a burgeoning demand for specialist and development finance.
“This is a really exciting opportunity to maintain my relationship with Sirius and The Brightstar Group, while also launching into a new market with a blank page and the chance to leverage an already successful business.”
Rob Jupp, CEO at The Brightstar Group, added: “This is a really exciting step for Rob and for Sirius to take the brand into a new geography. 

“We’ve identified a number of opportunities where an entrepreneurial debt advisory business can make a real difference in the New Zealand market, and the opening of our Auckland office in 2021 will be another significant milestone for The Brightstar Group.”
In early March, it was announced that Sirius would move from being a wholly owned subsidiary of Brightstar to a majority owned business as part of the Brightstar Group, following an investment by Nicholas Christofi, co-founder of Sirius.
