Bluestone eyes banking licence as Torpey steps down as MD
Specialist lender Bluestone Mortgages has confirmed that David Torpey will stand down from his role as managing director at the end of the year as the lender considers applying for a banking licence.


Torpey (pictured) will be involved in appointing his successor over the coming months. A spokesperson told Mortgage Solutions that Torpey did not yet have a new position planned.

A statement from the lender said: “With specialist lenders increasingly looking at a full banking licence as part of their future strategy, it is expected that the newly appointed managing director will give this strategy further consideration.”

Peter McGuinness, CEO of Bluestone Group, said: “David has brought a huge amount of value to Bluestone, and we would like to thank him for the significant progress the company has made under his leadership.

“By recruiting a very strong executive team and broadening our funding, distribution and marketing relationships, David has laid the foundations for our next stage of growth here in the UK.”

Torpey added: “It has been an absolute pleasure to work at Bluestone and I’m proud to have been involved in its journey to becoming a well-established specialist lender in the UK.

“I’m excited to see what the future holds for the business and am confident that the team will grow from strength to strength and wish Bluestone every success for the future.”
