The lender said it was business as usual as many of its operations were already conducted either online or over the telephone. Octane is still receiving applications and enquiries as normal and will continue to review risk on an ongoing basis, it said.
Jonathan Samuels (pictured), CEO of Octane Capital, said: “These are extraordinary times, but we wanted to make it clear to the broker community that we are fully committed and will continue to lend as close to normally as possible.”
Mark Posniak, managing director of Octane Capital, added: “All our staff have been working remotely since early last week and, in the weeks and months ahead, subject to the health of our team, there will no impact at the operational level on either existing or future applications.
“As the four loans completed in the past 24 hours hopefully show, we remain hungry to lend and will do our utmost to serve the broker community during these unprecedented times.”
