DF Capital moves to larger office

Specialist commercial lending and personal savings bank, DF Capital, has relocated to a larger office in Manchester city centre to accommodate its rapid growth over the past year.

The newly refurbished office in St James’ Building on Oxford Street is approximately 9,500 sq ft — twice as large as its former one in Deansgate, Manchester — and allows the bank to continue its recruitment drive in the region.

The new space consists of both formal meeting rooms and informal social areas that enable colleagues to come together in a more relaxed, informal setting.

It also has a training and innovation centre for learning and development activities, a wellbeing lounge with space for activities such as relaxation, mindfulness, yoga or pilates, and a quiet room offering tranquillity and privacy for personal activities such as prayer, meditation, or looking after individuals’ mental health.  

The move aims to encourage an atmosphere of discussion and teamwork and to connect people within DF Capital in order to facilitate team collaboration to support the needs of the bank’s customers and develop new products and services.  

Dominic Pozzoni, director and head of Colliers Manchester, advised DF Capital on its office relocation.

“We are all very excited to be moving into St James’ Building; it’s an iconic location with great character, and our new office provides a modern environment in which to work, collaborate and further continue our entrepreneurial spirit,” said Carl D’Ammassa, chief executive at DF Capital.

“We expect the larger workspace, great community and facilities will attract talent from across the region as we mark the start of the next phase of our strategic growth plan and show our commitment to growing our headquarters and team here in Manchester.”

Dominic commented: “St James’ Building was identified as ideally suited to accommodate DF Capital’s expansion and growth.  

“From the outset of the property search, it was important to find somewhere which would not only facilitate DF Capital’s growth, but also offer a workplace environment which would encourage collaboration — something which, post lockdown, all businesses are so very focused on providing.”
