This third party has been contacting borrowers on an unsolicited basis via the following email address: . Please note that our company Finance and Credit Corporation Limited is in no way connected with the third party and does not use or operate that email address.

These operations have been cold calling and emailing members of the public, fraudulently pretending to be or to be connected with Finance and Credit Corporation Limited, asking for upfront fees from borrowers and advancing monies in relation to purported “loans”.

Bumper year leaves Fincorp on the lookout for new talent

Bridging lender Fincorp is on the lookout for a talented business development director and two administrative staff to help the company cope with record levels of business.

The roles will be based in the lender’s London office in St John’s Wood while the sales position may require travel across the South East.

Last year the lender reported that it had seen a 68% uplift in business over 2013 and as a result it is now looking to boost its team.

Fincorp director Nigel Alexander said: “It’s a pretty nice problem to have – but after such a busy 2013 we are now running at full capacity and there’s more business to be done. We’re not trying to build an empire at Fincorp – we’re a tightly run ship that is still rooted firmly in our history of being a family-run business. But it’s time to take some more people on.

“December was a particularly busy month for us and we are conscious that we need to scale up so that we don’t compromise on the level of service we offer brokers and clients.”

Fincorp has been a specialist in short-term finance lending for over 25 years and was originally a family-run business set up by founding partner and director Ronnie Natas.

Natas remains at the helm of the firm alongside fellow directors Nigel Alexander and Matthew Anderson.

Fincorp prides itself particularly on the fact that all the brokers the company deals with have direct access to a director who is able to make decisions relating to a deal with complete autonomy.

“It’s really important to us that our ethos of having close relationships with our intermediaries isn’t compromised,” added Alexander. “It’s also important to us that every deal gets our full attention to detail. That’s why we’re looking to hire sooner rather than later.”

Fincorp offers short-term bridging loans to property professionals in London, the South East and South West as far as Bristol. All deals are considered on individual merit, offer a flat rate of 1.5% per month and no fees.

Interested parties should contact Fincorp directly on 020 7722 7547.
