Two additional hires brought in to meet increasing business demand.

Blackfinch Property welcomes Jason Wong and Emily Dunn to the team, taking its headcount to 17. Both Jason and Emily join as Investment Assistants, and will support the team through its next phase of growth with key duties to include appraising new inbound lending opportunities, performing due diligence and monitoring services on new and existing property deals.

Jason previously worked as an IT Manager and holds a BSc (Hons) in Economics with proficiency in Mandarin Chinese from the University of Exeter, as well as an MSc in Financial Analysis and Fund Management, also from the University of Exeter. He also passed his CFA Level I and is currently waiting for the results of his Level II exam.

Before joining Blackfinch, Emily worked as a Student Information Officer for the University of Law, Exeter. She holds a BA in English Literature from the University of Exeter as well as a Graduate Diploma in Law, also from the University of Law, Exeter.

Blackfinch Property has also announced two internal promotions to accompany the new hires, demonstrating the team’s capabilities and plans for further expansion. Lucas Cutts and Jordan Kong have been promoted to Investment Analysts. The team also recently welcomed Philip Downie as Investment Manager. The Blackfinch Property team includes investment and accounts specialists, plus an in-house legal team as a unique feature. This ensures the team can produce finance documents internally, saving considerable time in the due diligence process.

At Blackfinch, we are committed to bringing in talented individuals.
