HTB beefs up development finance team

Specialist lender Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has bolstered its development finance team with the appointment of Tim Mycock (pictured) as lending director for London and the South East.

Mycock brings extensive experience in property finance, having held senior management positions in bridging, private equity, and development finance in the UK and internationally. Most recently, he served as chief investment officer and previously as developments director.

His background includes funding a range of tenure mixes, such as residential, purpose-built student accommodation, hotels, and private rented sector schemes.

In his new role, Mycock will collaborate with brokers and developers across the region, focusing on structuring and packaging cases to ensure successful outcomes. His detailed knowledge and hands-on experience in all stages of development deals are expected to support brokers and their clients in his assigned region.

“London and the South East is a crucial region for HTB,” said Neil Leitch, managing director of development finance at Hampshire Trust Bank. “With Tim on board, we look forward to delivering the combination of flexible funding and hands-on customer service that is synonymous with the bank.

“Tim has fantastic experience in this industry and will be a great asset in supporting our brokers and developer clients, even when cases have certain tricky or quirky elements to them. Across the bank, we are committed to investing in our staff, building teams with the knowledge and understanding that allow them to provide what brokers and borrowers truly need.”

Commenting on his appointment, Mycock expressed his excitement over joining HTB at such a pivotal time in the development finance market cycle.

“The wealth of development experience within the team is immense, and I look forward to supporting existing and new contacts with their development finance needs,” he said.

“I'm fortunate to have hands-on development and financing experience, which I’m looking forward to using to make our clients’ developments possible – even the most complex – and deliver the best possible experience.”
