Ortus Secured Finance
Jon is managing director and a key shareholder of Ortus Secured Finance.
Ortus is a lender with an award-winning range of products focused mainly on the commercial and non-regulated residential sectors. In late 2015 Ortus closed its first regulated fund which transformed its business and means it does not depend on any form of external financing.
Jon joined the Bank of Scotland graduate scheme in 1999, where he qualified as a banker, before holding a number of senior positions in the lending sector. Jon worked at St George Bank in Sydney as Cashflow Finance Sales Manager for the east coast of NSW, structuring factoring and invoice discounting facilities. Jon also worked for merchant Singer & Friedlander and was a member of the team which established a private banking division with a focus on lending to HWN individuals. Jon rose to director at Singers and structured over £1 billion of loans secured by property, aircraft, superyachts, artworks, financial instruments … even music rights.
