UK-based peer-to-peer lending platform Assetz Capital recently announced the opening of the office for its Scotland team. According to the lender, the Scotland team has moved into new office premises based in the heart of Edinburgh. While sharing details about the new location, John Hewitt, who heads up the Northern Regional Team of Assetz Capital, stated:
“This is the second time we’ve upgraded our office in Scotland in two years, which is indicative of our performance in Scotland as well as the wider region. With a strong appetite for funding and a significant pipeline of future deals, the whole of the Northern Team is in a fantastic position for growth, and these premises will allow us to accommodate even more staff as we grow even bigger. We have grown from a one-man band to a team of nine in under two years. It is encouraging to see Assetz Capital invest in this team as we continue to expand our presence in the whole of the region.”
