Meet the Team: Danny Power
We sit down with Business Development Manager, Danny Power, for our “Meet the Team” series with Arbuthnot Specialist Finance (ASFL), the short-term property finance subsidiary of Arbuthnot Latham
What does your role entail?
I am fortunate enough to have developed close relationships with many brokers in the industry where I can showcase ASFL’s real estate lending solutions. My role is to promote the excellent market offering we have, developing strong business flows from brokers and the many newcomers to the market.
As of June 2022, what trends are you seeing in the Specialist Finance market?
The market seems to be enjoying a rollercoaster ride at present. Our enquiries in H1 2022 have grown steadily, and our levels of enquiry remain buoyant. The market is busy. However, there has been some noise from the trade press warning that bridging enquiries have fallen by 50% during Q2 – I suppose it depends on who you ask.
What would you say is noteworthy about Arbuthnot Specialist Finance?
The team that has been created here has a special mix of enthusiasm and experience. New members have been recruited to handle growing volumes, and regular market price comparison, coupled with our hands-on management ensures we keep a competitive edge.
Are there any personal or professional highlights so far for you this year?
Introducing ASFL to brokers and packagers who may not have considered us before, or even knew that Arbuthnot Latham has a subsidiary dedicated to short-term property finance has been a really rewarding experience. I am hoping that we can now grow recognition into reward.
Finally, do you have any hobbies/interests outside of your role?
I have worked for many charities over the years, some for personal reasons and I have recently joined Rotary Club to concentrate my efforts. I am a lifelong Manchester United fan so, obviously, hoping for better things in the future. I have been a compere and DJ for many years and still get out to Northern Soul and Motown gigs. My main pastime these days is holidaying with my wife, Christine.
