Its positioning is aligned with the broader Arrow strategy, with its focus on further expansion in value-add servicing, direct lending and the real estate segment.
“Given the dynamics in the growing Dutch economy, there is a clear opportunity for Vesting Finance to expand its footprint, both as a servicing, data and analytics specialist, and as an origination platform for Arrow’s credit Fund. This makes it an especially attractive time to join Vesting Finance and I’m looking forward to working with my new colleagues.”
