Gatehouse Bank Expands Property Team
Gatehouse Bank has strengthened its property division with two key appointments to its Build To Rent and Real Estate Finance teams.
Mustafa Dubaissi has joined the Bank as an Associate in the Real Estate Investment Advisory team, specialising in the UK’s growing Build to Rent sector.
Meanwhile, solicitor Nisha Raj has been appointed Legal Associate in the Real Estate Finance team, moving from City law firm Taylor Wessing.
Mustafa has extensive experience in the Build To Rent sector, having spent the past four years working at a London-based private Family Office. Mustafa will be focusing on developing Gatehouse Bank’s growing Build to Rent exposure, which currently spans over 1,600 units across the UK.
Nisha has more than four years’ experience in real estate finance and will be responsible for managing the completion process of the Bank’s real estate finance transactions.
Both appointments will be based at the Bank’s head office in London.
Paul Stockwell, Chief Commercial Officer, Gatehouse Bank commented:
“It’s an exciting time to be at the Bank. Our product range is growing and we’re showing a determination to lead the field, whether that’s in Build To Rent or the savings account best buy tables."
“We’ve set our sights on an ambitious growth path, partly powered by a drive to reach new audiences, and we are going to need experts in all our areas of business to continue to achieve that, so I’m delighted to welcome Nisha and Mustafa as the latest additions to the team.”
Gatehouse Bank has been named Best Investment Bank 2018 at the Global Islamic Finance Awards, in recognition of its successful Real Estate Investment Advisory and Build-to-Rent capabilities.
Gatehouse Bank has announced that it is teaming up with a leading cash deposit platform, Flagstone, in a partnership that will see the Bank’s highly competitive savings products promoted to Flagstone clients.
Gatehouse Bank has launched its first apprenticeship scheme, with six A level students taking the first step in their career in Financial Services and joining the Shariah-compliant challenger bank.
