Pluto Finance appoints first regional Lending Director

Pluto Finance has made its third senior hire this year, appointing Evan Griffin as Lending Director, the specialist lender’s first regional lead.

Joining from Hampshire Trust Bank, where he spent over two years as Lending Director, Evan will be covering the areas north of Nottingham, expanding Pluto Finance’s lending on schemes across this fast-growing region.

Evan spent the early part of his career in Treasury at Lloyds Bank, moving into their Commercial Banking arm and latterly into the Northern real estate market, before moving to United Trust Bank where he specialised in development lending.

Evan Griffin says: “It’s great to be joining Pluto Finance, a best-in-class platform able to lend up to, and above, the challenger banks in terms of debt quantum and leverage. My role will be supporting local developers and brokers with development and bridging loans, extending Pluto’s strong and trusted customer service into the northern regions.”

Justin Faiz, Partner of Pluto Finance, comments: “Residential development in the north of the UK is expanding rapidly and we are pleased to now be able to extend our lending into this region. Having worked in the northern real estate market for the past eight years, Evan is the perfect candidate to push Pluto’s work in this area.”

Pluto Finance is backed by some of the world’s largest institutional investors and is currently funding the development of over 2,000 new homes in the UK. In 2021, the specialist lender announced a strategic investment partnership with the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), the UK’s largest private pension fund, to provide financing to SME’s developers, delivering new housing across the UK.
