3rd generation lender, Octane Capital, today announced Graham Macaulay and Liam Lawlor will be joining its rapidly growing team from Octopus Property.

Macaulay will be joining Octane Capital as Senior Credit Manager and Lawlor as Senior Business Development Manager. Start dates for both have yet to be confirmed.

Demand for Octane Capital’s ‘product-less’, or ‘3rd generation’ lending, which offers increased flexibility for brokers and borrowers alike, is already sharply above target.

To keep pace, Octane is hiring some of the most senior people in the industry who understand the dynamics of risk-based pricing - and have the experience to implement it.

With many other lenders competing on rate at the vanilla end of the market, Octane Capital has chosen to focus on complex and larger loans that brokers struggle to place.

Mark Posniak, Managing Director, Octane Capital, commented:

"In their respective fields, Graham and Liam have two of the sharpest minds in the industry, and sharp minds need to be challenged. Both immediately bought into Octane’s risk-based pricing model and the bespoke, complex loans that we have set out to offer. Our goal is to create a lender where the most experienced people in specialist finance can test themselves each day, do so in a flat and fun environment, and work alongside brokers as partners.”
