Specialist Finance Centre enters Scottish market




Specialist Finance Centre (SFC) has launched its proposition into Scotland as part of its expansion strategy.

SFC Scotland, based in Glasgow, is headed by Allan Smith (pictured above), who joins the firm from Money Sense.

Its core product range is bridging and development finance, as Allan has extensive experience in these areas.

It also offers all SFC products, including commercial, BTL, invoice and asset finance, aiming to provide clients and introducers in Scotland with a large range of services.

With the launch of its Scottish proposition, the company now has a three-pronged trading approach, which includes its main intermediary-led master broker services, as well as its self-employed adviser arm, SFC Solo.

Daniel Yeo, founder and managing director at SFC, said: “Ultimately, the infrastructure we have in place at SFC offers us the ability to service the growth of SFC Solo and SFC Scotland will be afforded the same support.

 “We’re extremely pleased that Allan has joined SFC to spearhead our entrance into the Scottish market and his experience and connections will prove key differentiators for our proposition. 

“We have spent time getting to know each other and it’s clear that we share the same values. 

“Crucial to SFC Scotland’s success is that these values filter through into the team as it grows, and I have every confidence Allan will succeed.”

Allan added: “It’s a privilege to be offered the opportunity to work with Dan and his team to launch SFC Scotland. 

“It’s clear that SFC has fast become a highly respected business and recognised brand in the specialist market and it’s an exciting time to be joining the company. 

“They have a great reputation and the ethos of the company was really appealing to me as it ties in with my own approach to clients and introducers alike. 

“I’m very much looking forward to developing SFC Scotland into a real one stop shop for clients and advisers alike.”
