What a night! Introducer Christmas Drinks Round-up
Last week, we hosted the Funding Circle Introducer Christmas Drinks at our office in London. It was a jolly affair with guests trying their hand at ping pong and enjoying a festive feast of mini mince pies, pigs in blankets and delicious sausage rolls – but not necessarily in that order!
Thank you to all who came, it was a valuable forum for us and is something we’ll be looking to do again in the New Year as we appreciate London is not accessible for all.
The drinks were a great opportunity to welcome Luke Jooste into the introducer team. Luke joined Funding Circle in November 2013 to set up our property product, and the team has since originated over £120 million in property finance loans. Prior to this, Luke was UK Head of Property Finance for Barclays Business Bank. Asked why he moved into the marketplace lending industry Luke responded: ‘it’s probably the most exciting development in the UK financial sector at the moment.’ We’re delighted he’ll be working with the introducer team into the New Year.
On behalf of the team and everyone at Funding Circle, we’d like to thank you for your support throughout 2015, and we very much look forward to doing many more deals with you in 2016.
