Gill Sanders, Banking Director, Hampden & Co, said: “Hampden & Co continues to go from strength to strength and has rightly gained an enviable reputation in the market for its client-focused approach. I look forward to bringing my experience to deliver for our clients.”
In April, Hampden & Co reported strong growth in loans and deposits for FY2021. Deposits rose by 39 per cent to £696 million, while loans and advances were up 29 per cent to £422 million.
The bank saw strong demand in 2021 for its tailored lending solutions, which include residential, retirement, family guarantor, multi-property and buy-to-let mortgages.
