Lino moved from the UK to Gibraltar in 1985, joining RBS in 1990, reaching the position of Head of Mortgages before moving to NatWest as Head of Premium Banking and Mortgages in 2010.
Sancus opened its office in Gibraltar in June 2015, providing lending solutions to small-medium enterprises (SMEs), high net worth individuals and trusts. The company provides its own capital, underwriting each loan and then syndicating the loan with its pool of Co-Funders, giving them the opportunity to diversify their wealth into funding local projects.
Lino told B2B “Sancus is a unique business model, due to its size, structure and source of funding it can move very quickly to secure borrowing. We also take a more holistic view of a company or individual, based on years of experience and knowledge of the local market.”
Steve O’Brien, Managing Director, Sancus Gibraltar added, “It is a great pleasure to have Lino on board, he is well respected in the business community and comes with a great deal of experience in our field and a deep understanding of mortgages, credit and risk.”
The Sancus BMS Group also has offices in the UK, Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man*.
