Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has appointed Robert Still and Richard O’Brien to its new specialist business finance division.
The specialist bank’s new arm is the relaunch of its asset finance division and Robert and Richard will lead the new structured asset finance line, to complement the existing core offering which will remain unchanged.
The new structure comprises broker asset finance, wholesale lending and a series of specialist business lines, including structured asset finance, which will focus on restructuring business debts ranging from £250,000-£2.5m.
Both Robert and Richard have joined from Amicus Asset Finance and will report to Jon Maycock, managing director of the specialist business finance division at HTB (pictured above).
Robert served as director of business development at Amicus Asset Finance, while Richard was a BDM.
Jon said: “This relaunch has been implemented to broaden and develop HTB’s proposition.
“We are expanding into new markets and investing in specialist expertise which will drive the delivery of flexible and innovative solutions for our new and existing business partners.
“This strategy will help us achieve our long-term ambition of becoming the go-to bank in our chosen markets.
“This next stage in our growth trajectory sees us build on our strengths and unique market position as our team of experts and range of specialist services expand.
“Going forward, we are focused on delivering excellence through specialism and truly adding value for our business partners.”
