Voltaire Financial is delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Blowers as Partner.
Chris left Maslow Capital in October having co-founded the business in 2009 and having been responsible for origination. During his 12 years at Maslow Capital, the business lent in excess of £2bn of development finance to developers of build-to-sell residential, build-to-rent residential and PBSA (amongst other assets). Throughout his 40 year career Chris held senior positions at RBS, AIB (where he ran the City Corporate Office) and Investec Private Bank. A graduate of the LSE, Chris started his career in 1978 on the graduate scheme of Investment Bank Williams & Glyn’s.
“Chris is one of the best known and most highly respected real estate finance lenders in the UK CRE marketplace. His track record in the residential and PBSA sectors is second to none and he has extensive experience in highly complex development situations. His relationships are with the leading developers, housebuilders, contractors and professionals in the market. The team at Voltaire is therefore thrilled to welcome him on board and looks forward to years of shared success to come,” says James Thomlinson, Co-founder of Voltaire Financial.
“I’m really excited to be joining Voltaire as a Partner and to continuing to build on the firm’s reputation for full service, integrity and hard work. The fragmented nature of the funding landscape at present has made the need for a debt/equity advisor paramount. My relationship with the business dates back over 10 years and the opportunity to work together to deliver value for clients, some of whom I have known for many years, is a compelling one,” says Chris Blowers.
