Women take the credit for Finanze's first year of success
Imogen Sporle has been promoted to Head of Property Finance overseeing all of Finanze Ltd as a result of her outstanding contribution to the firm since joining and helping scale the firm in its first year of operation to revenues of over £300,000 and a pipeline of committed transactions worth over £2m.
Imogen Sporle, Head of Property Finance With her support and that of the wider team, we have issued terms on over £750m of property since our launch and we are currently active on over £150m of gross loans moving into the new year.
We have designed, engineered and launched 5 custom products this year and are shortly due to launch another 3 that we have built from scratch, courting lenders to support the products. It's normal for lenders to create new products, it's not normal for brokers to take the lead in product design and development.
The overall Group continues to grow exponentially off the back of this, with launching Finanze Business for asset finance, invoice finance and business loans along with Finanze Protection, to market protection and insurance products from vetted partners within the last few months. Finanze Technologies is busy developing our own in-house proprietary CRM and Finanze Success our education & publishing arm will launch in early December.
In 2023 we look to add prime lending and asset origination to our capabilities and are in discussions with lenders and fund managers already to achieve this aim.
With Imogen moving up to run the property finance arm, we are also pleased to reveal that Samantha Demuth, who recently joined us having previously run her own firm, has been promoted to the position of Head of Regulated & Term Finance, to take over the team that Imogen built and we expect her to shine just as brightly.

Patricia McGirr, currently working in Distressed Debt within the Term Finance team will also add the role of Head of Finanze Success to her responsibilities, leading our education and publishing arm given her longstanding experience in the sector. Through it we aim to improve clients understanding and awareness not only of property and business finance products and property strategies but we will also educate them on property conveyancing, option agreements, accounting structures, pension and insurance, sourcing and development and many other areas thanks to our professional guest trainers. The courses will be registered to count towards CPD as well, and therefore we may even find some of our peers registering for training.

We also continue to look for opportunities to invest in others where it complements our Group activities, be that people or companies.
"My mission when setting up this company was to bring the sophistication and service from my investment banking past to the consumer and SME property finance market. A 'hand-in-glove' service that goes above and beyond. Imogen, Samantha and Patricia embody this service hence increasing their responsibilities to further grow and shape the firm."
