Articus Finance

New specialist mortgage brokerage set to launch in September

Specialist mortgage brokerage Articus Finance is set to launch next month.

The London-based broker will provide services for HNW clients and specialise in property finance and insurance.

This will include services for residential mortgages, BTL, refurb and bridging.

The brokerage will be headed up by Antonio Michael (pictured, above), with Oliver Hines-Lloyd (below) serving as director.

Antonio started the new firm after serving as the head of private office at Enness, having previously worked at, John Charcol and Countrywide.

Oliver previously served as a mortgage broker at Enness and, prior to that, was at deVere Group.

The firm typically has a minimum loan size of £500,000 and will work with foreign nationals and expats to secure finance against UK property.

It will assist wealthy individuals with their financial transactions, while also receiving referrals from industry professionals, including estate agents, solicitors, tax advisers and accountants.

Articus will typically charge a fee of 0.65% of the loan amount to clients for residential property mortgages, while for other asset types fees will be given after enquiry.

Antonio said: “Having been in the industry for 15 years and tackled some of London’s largest property transactions, I decided to launch Articus Finance to focus on residential and bridging finance.

“We feel the need for bridging finance will increase over the next year given the political uncertainty and this is where my knowledge and relationships with key lenders will allow me to act fast for our clients.”
