A new provider of commercial mortgages has been launched in the UK called Go Business Mortgages, specialising in the sub-prime market.
Go’s founder Andrew Strode-Gibbons was former chief executive officer and chairman of The Mortgage Lender Ltd which he founded in May 2000, of which he subsequently sold to Kensington Group Plc in July 2002.
Strode-Gibbons, says: “Finance is what I understand and know best, and Go
presents a brilliant opportunity.
“There’s a huge gap in the market and we will provide intermediaries and
independent financial advisers with an excellent service and source
excellent products which will prove to be a real winner for their clients.”
Working alongside Strode-Gibbons as managing director is Henry Brown.
The pair met in New York where Brown worked as an independent consultant to a number of start-up businesses providing advice on strategic, planning and finance/fund-raising matters.
In addition he has worked with private equity and VC investors in carrying out due diligence and transaction execution in a number of sectors including financial services.
Prior to his operational experience, Brown worked in the city as an investment banker and venture capitalist.
