The company is headed by Westley Richards who has already arranged £50m of property finance through a variety of lenders since soft launching West Rock Capital in April of this year.
He has more than 20 years’ experience in real estate finance, working at investment banks such as Credit Suisse and, more recently, at a Mayfair-based debt advisory business.
Richards said: “It’s fantastic to have all systems go and to be able to officially launch with £50m of finance already completed through some of the major specialist lenders in the market.
“As a company we are able to cover every area of real estate finance. The length and durability of the client and lender relationships I’ve built up over the years will continue through West Rock Capital.”
Covering the whole of the UK, West Rock Capital will arrange finance across the capital structure, from bridging and development finance to mezzanine and longer-term investment finance. It will cover all real estate asset classes.
In August, West Rock Capital partnered in a deal with finance house Shawbrook to deliver a £11.5m fund towards the acquisition of a permitted development in Milton Keynes.
