SPF Private Clients has opened new offices in Hong Kong and Singapore
The Singapore office is to be headed by Scott Mitchell, who has been based in the country for more than 20 years, while in Hong Kong the new office will be led by Becca Pickard who has worked in the mortgage industry for over a decade including five years in Hong Kong.
Chloe Ho is relocating from SPF’s London headquarter and will be based in Hong Kong but serving as client relationship manager (CRM) across both offices.
Hong Kong remains one of the world’s most flourishing financial centres and the demand for UK property remains high. The need for a trusted and knowledgeable mortgage broker who can guide clients through the range of UK mortgage options according to their specific needs, which can be more complex, is essential, says Pickard.
Our goal is to provide exceptional service to our clients, working closely with existing stakeholders and building new relationships to enhance the SPF brand across Hong Kong and Asia as a whole, says Pickard.
Mitchell adds: I have spent many years guiding individuals and businesses through the 30-plus lender choices for UK real estate financing, ensuring optimal solutions tailored to their distinct requirements. Our goal is to be the go-to adviser for those navigating the complex process of securing a mortgage in an ever-evolving and competitive mortgage market.
Mark Harris, chief executive of SPF, says: We are not new to this part of the world, having served this market remotely for around 26 years. It feels good to put our feet on the ground on a more permanent basis and we look forward to growing these offices over time. We will also be developing our long-established relationships with a number of leading agents in the region, as well as using our position as part of the Howden Group, taking advantage of their vast connections throughout the Far East.
