Ortus is a specialist short-term leisure finance provider launched earlier this year, focusing on the pub, consumer and unregulated sectors.
Armann Thorvaldsson, chief executive of Ortus, said: “Ortus Secured Finance is delighted to be joining the AOBP as an Associate Lender. The Association continues to go from strength to strength and is a great benefit to the industry.
“Having been active for less than 12 months, we are very pleased with Ortus’ progress to date and becoming an Associate Lender with the AOBP is a key step, as we look to increase the level of awareness of our products.
“We know a number of the AOBP broker members and look forward to continuing to work with them, whilst at the same time forging new relationships with members we have not yet dealt with.
“We will continue our main focus in the leisure sector and look forward to growing the size of our loan book as we demonstrate our deliverability to an increasing number of brokers.”
The news comes just two days before the AOBP Annual General Meeting which will be held on Thursday, October 24 at the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair.
