Peer-to-peer finance platform Assetz Capital has appointed Mark Standley, the former branch manager at Handelsbanken Cardiff and Bridgend, to oversee the firm’s expansion plans for South Wales.
Prior to his time at Handelsbanken, Standley was with Barclays leading a mid and large corporate business development team across South Wales.
He has extensive experience in property investment, development, and supporting international and trading organisations of all sizes.
Stuart Law, CEO of Assetz Capital says: "At Assetz Capital a key focus for 2017 and beyond revolves around us having a strong regional relationship director network. This allows us to offer truly tailored assistance to any business, no matter where in the UK they operate. Mark’s experience and knowledge of the South Wales region will allow us to grow our presence in the area and will no doubt contribute to 2017 being our most successful year ever.”
Standley says: “With over 20 years’ experience in helping South Wales corporates to achieve their potential, I fully appreciate the difficulties they can face when looking to acquire funding, and I believe that Assetz Capital is the best placed alternative lender to help. I have been delighted with the commerciality that I have found within the business, a true ‘can do’ culture which empowers me to make a real difference for business across South Wales.”
