Corporate Finance and Peer to Peer Funding

David qualified as a chartered accountant in 1989, having gained experience in one of the “big 4” accounting practices, David then specialised in Corporate Finance for a National accounting practice, looking after funding requirements from the client base across various Midlands offices.

Having utilised the services of brokers whilst in a “corporate finance arena”, David saw the merit in putting together such a business in order to access many forms of funding and to bring brokerage into the professional arena.

David established Sterling Capital Reserve Ltd in 1990, with a view of setting up a professional team of experienced commercial finance brokers, accessing multiproduct services for a wide introducer base, and not restricting the service to one firm of accountants.

As well as running Sterling from a strategic and operational aspect, David takes a “hands on approach” and provides lead advisory services to clients looking at corporate transactions (Acquisitions, MBO, MBI). Funding for which is sourced from utilising the services of the in house brokerage team.

Outside of work, David is an eternal optimist holding a season ticket at Nottingham Forest, plays chess at county level and provides a taxi and cashpoint service to two grown up children.
