He will be specifically tasked with growing the Bank’s portfolio of property loans in this strategically important region.

Commenting on Anil’s appointment, Robert Grigg, Managing Director of Property Finance, said:

The Midlands is a key strategic growth area for the Bank. There are a number of exciting property development opportunities in the region and Anil’s experience, as well as his 20 year record in property finance, will help us grow our portfolio and foster close relationships with key strategic partners.

“The forthcoming arrival of High Speed 2, connecting London, Birmingham and the East Midlands, and the government’s commitment to investing in these regions, means it is more important than ever for us to have a physical presence in the region.”

Before joining the Bank, Anil served as Business Lending Manager at Royal Bank of Scotland, focused on providing lending solutions to SMEs and commercial real estate clients. He has also worked at National Australia Bank, Clydesdale Bank and Bank of Scotland.
