Brightstar launches HNW arm Sirius Private Clients


Brightstar Financial has launched high net worth arm Sirius Private Clients.

Sirius will focus on financing for residential and commercial real estate transactions.

The Sirius team will be based at Brightstar’s City of London offices and work with clients looking for deals of £1m or more on buy-to-let, residential and commercial mortgages, development and bridging loans.

The division is led by director Robert Collins who also heads up the commercial and development finance team at Brightstar.

Collins says: “The current property market, particularly in London, is in a state of flux as new tax rules and Brexit take effect. We feel that the time is right to offer this specialist service as clients and intermediaries look for the best funding solutions in this changing market.”

Brightstar chief executive Rob Jupp says: “Brightstar already deals with high net worth transactions, but this dedicated team based in London is able to offer a bespoke proposition to provide clients with a more personal level of service.”
