They both have the attributes that we value at Sancus, comprehensive knowledge of the property lending sector, a “can-do” attitude, they are well-respected in the business community and are a pleasure to work with. We have made huge investments in people over the last few months, both front and back-office as well as extending our funding lines in preparation for a bumper 2022. Despite the pandemic created challenges of 2021, it has proved to be a record year for us in the UK.  The hiring of Tony, Barry and the new starters this year and those we look forward to announcing in early 2022 will enable us to build on the successful foundations we have laid in 2021.”
