EstateGuru said Tan will also work with the country teams to attract global institutional funding
EstateGuru has appointed City veteran Judith Tan as its head of capital markets, to support its recent UK launch and maintain its presence across Europe.
The European peer-to-peer lending platform said that Tan has a target of originating €5bn (£4.2bn) in three years, with the majority from the German entity.
Judith has extensive experience in the financial services sector, having held roles at Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers, Commerzbank, Nomura, Investec Bank and Northgate Investment Management. Most recently, she served as a director at Native Finance and advised property funds and banks as a consultant.
Judith has extensive knowledge and experience of both the UK and US markets and an outstanding pedigree, having originated circa $7bn (£5.4bn) in transactions across both sides of the Atlantic and Europe, said Marek Partel, co-founder and chairman at EstateGuru.
She has already initiated plans to propel EstateGuru’s growth as a leading property investment platform as we continue disrupting the landscape, and will be a real asset to the team, Partel said.
Judith will lead EstateGuru’s new European Investment Fund (EIF)-backed credit fund, which is open to institutional investors. The fund uses resources from the European Guarantee Fund that was set up to ensure that European small businesses have access to finance to survive the pandemic.
EstateGuru said Tan will also work with the country teams to attract global institutional funding, with a particular focus on the US.
EstateGuru is a forward-thinking player in the real estate investment scene across Europe, Judith said.
She said: Having just launched in the UK with the opening of its Manchester office, it’s an exciting time to join and help with its ambitious plans to expand nationwide, as well as focusing on the EIF credit fund to further develop our growth strategy.
