Martin was part of the Fortwell team for close to six years, following previous roles at Dragonfly Property Finance (now known as Octopus Property) and AxiaMetrics LLP.

Matt also spent nearly six years at the lender.

The departures coincide with a change in the lender’s focus towards more complex, higher value, real estate funding solutions.

The statement concluded: “To this end, Fortwell Capital [remains] committed to being a dynamic and reliable source of funding support for investors and developers seeking success in the real estate market."
