HLB Mann Judd Sydney has established a new Debt Advisory business through a joint venture with well-regarded banking executive James Macfarlane.
Tony Fittler, managing partner of HLB Mann Judd Sydney, said the new division would provide debt-financing advice for individual clients’ personal banking needs as well as advice on funding commercial transactions for corporate clients.
“James’ considerable experience in banking, finance and debt growth solutions for individuals and businesses complement the existing services in accounting, advisory and wealth provided by HLB Mann Judd Sydney.
“James is a highly skilled, relationship focussed professional who has led banking and finance teams in the commercial, corporate, property and leverage markets, to provide consistently strong results over a long period.
“His proven ability to support and nurture business clients’ growth ambitions and goals make him a good fit for HLB Mann Judd Sydney.
“All borrowers should ensure they have the optimal financing structure before they seek the appropriate financing solution. The need for independent specialist advice on debt requirement continues to grow and HLB Mann Judd Sydney will now be well placed to meet this increasing demand,” Mr Fittler said.
Mr Macfarlane said there is a wide range of financing options available these days that individual and corporate clients can consider.
“There are many new lenders in the market in addition to the Big Four banks, that can provide very competitive loan products. This is especially the case more recently with the tighter lending restrictions banks have imposed on borrowers,” he said.
Mr Macfarlane was most recently with St George Bank where he worked for the last 11 years managing banking distribution and client facing teams.
He holds a post graduate diploma in Business Administration (Executive MBA) from University of Queensland and a Bachelor of Economics from University of Queensland. He also holds a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management from the National Finance Institute.
HLB Mann Judd Sydney is a firm of accountants and business and financial advisers, and part of the HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association.
