Matthew-Blaine Young (pictured above) has been promoted to the role of senior relationship director in Secure Trust Bank’s real estate finance team.


His new position includes client relationship management, portfolio and risk management, debt origination, and transaction closing.

Matthew joined the bank four years ago as a relationship director, responsible for covering London and the South East.

Geoff Ray, managing director at Secure Trust Bank’s real estate finance division, said: “For the first time, real estate finance’s balances exceeded £1bn this year, with revenues up by 10.4%.

“Matthew has driven some of our highest profile real estate deals, particularly in the affordable and student housing sectors, and his promotion recognises this contribution.”

The lender’s real estate team provides lending facilities between £1m and £45m to residential and commercial property developers and investors, from SME housebuilders to UK-based funds. 

The bank has also committed £100m specifically to assist SME housebuilders and property developers get their projects underway, with loans from £1m-5m.

In addition, Secure Trust Bank has recently launched a new greener homes scheme aimed at residential property investors.
