SDKA is proud to announce the appointment of Scot Tsang as Head of Operations and In-house Legal to strengthen its operational and technological offering in the bridging finance sector. Scot will be responsible for all lending operations at SDKA.

Scot joins SDKA from London-based law firm, Spector Constant & Williams, where he was a partner and director. He has over 12 years’ experience in property law and secured lending bringing a wealth of knowledge and operational experience to the table.

Scot comments, “Having worked with SDKA for a number of years in private practice and seeing them grow from strength to strength, I was delighted to be asked to join the team in-house and it was an easy decision to make. I’m excited to be part of the next phase of growth and to join the high calibre team. SDKA is an impressive and dynamic business, and the future looks very bright.”

In spite of the current challenging market conditions caused by Covid-19, SDKA’s commitment to quality of service and speed of delivery has enabled the company to continue growing its loan book. SDKA was one of the few lenders in the bridging market to have remained open throughout the pandemic and lent with record speed, to support its valued client base and broker partners. In the last year alone, SDKA has added another experienced underwriter to the team, joined a number of intermediary panels and increased its existing funding line with Shawbrook Bank. SDKA has also recently agreed a new funding line with Aldermore Bank, to accelerate its growth in 2021.

SDKA Managing Director, Kunal Mehta states, “This is an exciting time for SDKA! We have truly raised the bar this past year and I am absolutely thrilled that Scot has joined the team. We have worked closely with Scot over the past 3 years. Our clients and broker partners have first-hand experience of the quality with which Scot operates and of his pragmatic and commercial approach to lending. Scot is not only highly respected by our clients and broker partners but his dynamism and integrity ties in perfectly with the core value of our business to provide exceptional service. With Scot’s extensive background and incredible professionalism, I can confidently state that he is a true asset to our team and clients. We welcome Scot on-board as we expand the business at pace.”
