Swoop’s latest recruits aim to boost property ownership for SMEs

Updated: November 18, 2021 at 5:12 pm
Swoop’s new hires are building out the company’s commercial mortgage offer and putting property ownership in the hands of SME owners.

Commercial mortgages are a great option for many SMEs: the property market delivers good returns and for business owners who are looking at their exit strategy, the building in which they operate is a major asset that will add to the final value of their business. 

Swoop has always offered commercial mortgages, and as interest in this sector has grown, the decision was made to add to the team to broaden our experience in a specialised market and ensure that Swoop customers are getting the best possible deal.
