Sirius Property Finance has partnered with Chris Field to lead the debt advisor’s new Specialist Business Finance Team, specialising in the Care and Hospitality sectors.

Chris has more than 28 years’ experience in the finance industry, having previously held roles at a number of high-profile institutions including a corporate debt advisory firm, a specialist city broker, Lombard, Alpha Bank and Barclays.

In his new role as Head of Care & Hospitality, Chris will lead and grow the new Specialist Business Finance Team for Sirius, which includes Emma Vanson who joined the debt advisor in March to specialise in the care and education sectors.

Nicholas Christofi, Co-Founder at Sirius Property Finance, says: “‘Chris is the perfect choice to lead and grow our new Specialist Business Finance Team. His meticulous and transparent approach has made Chris the go-to broker in the hotel and care sectors for SME and corporate borrowers alike. Having won several accolades during his time in the industry, Chris has carved out a remarkable reputation within his extensive network for his knowledge and always going the extra mile for his clients. We believe his expertise within the care and hospitality lending market is second to none and we’re delighted to have him on board to help us to further support these sectors.”

Chris Field, Head of Care & Hospitality at Sirius Property Finance, said: “The hospitality industry has clearly had a tough time and needs funding more than ever, but it is still seen by savvy investors as a great long-term investment that will present many opportunities as the sector recovers. Sirius has recognised the importance of this market and also the niche requirements of the sector. My team and I will bring the necessary core expertise and contacts within the care, education and hospitality markets to support our wider commercial team.”
