‘We are a 3rd generation property company trading for 50 odd years.
We’ve had established banking relations for many years. When our current lenders would not increase our loan size Wharf stepped in. Moved our banking over to a new bank & arranged it all seamlessly. He arranged an increase in loan size allowing us to further expand our portfolio. It’s been an absolute pleasure and we do look forward to further deals with Wharf Financial.‘
