Jordan has over 10 years transaction experience focusing most of his career in the speciality finance sector as a lender and advisor across the complete capital spectrum. He is passionate about helping management teams achieve their goals through a balanced approached of corporate strategy and technical understanding.

Jordan started his career at RBS where he worked across structured finance, portfolio management and credit roles. During this time, he took a deep interest in the speciality finance sector, attracted to the technical challenges associated with the dynamics loan portfolios, as well as an ability to provide value-add advice and form strong corporate relationships built on market understanding.

In 2015 he joined EY to help establish the Financial Services Debt Advisory practice, with a goal of broadening the investor universe for the sector and providing tailored advice to balance sheet businesses looking to raise capital. As capital providers differentiated less between debt and equity solutions, Jordan broadened his role and spent a number of years focusing on building the speciality finance M&A practice, ultimately participating in over 50 engagements across the full capital spectrum.
