Privately-owned specialist mortgage and finance brokerage, City Finance Brokers, has announced the addition of Simon Kelly to its network.
The appointment of Kelly, who is based in Taunton, South West England, marks the next step in City Finance Brokers’ plans to expand beyond London and the South East.
With over 16 years working in financial services, he has built up a specialism in working with high-net-worth (HNW) clients in development, commercial and bridging finance. While he has many local clients near Taunton, Kelly also has clients throughout the country and an international client base.
“City Finance Brokers is an incredibly dynamic and professional business,” Kelly commented.
“Whilst I’m looking forward to bringing my own client base and new leader contacts to the team, their excellent ties to London-based private banks will help to enhance the work that I do with my existing client base.”
Established in March 2018, City Finance Brokers now comprises nine self-employed mortgage brokers across all aspects of residential and commercial brokerage.
Speaking on Kelly’s appointment, Mark Horne, founder and managing director at City Finance Brokers, said: “His appointment helps us expand our footprint beyond London but it also helps bolster the wider team with specialist knowledge in complex mortgages with private banks.”
He said the brokerage has ‘ambitious growth plans’ for the next three years and is always looking for the best talent in the industry to join.
