Head of Debt Funds
Jeff is responsible for overseeing and developing the various debt-based funding managed by FSE, including the ongoing design, development and fund-raising strategies for new debt fund services.
Jeff is responsible also for driving FSE’s Social Impact investment activity, overseeing the Community Generation Fund which supports disadvantaged communities to develop renewable energy infrastructure for local benefit and the Social Impact Accelerator which provides cashflow-based rather than asset-backed loans (“unsecured lending”) to social enterprises and charities. Jeff also sits on the approval panel of the Investment & Contract Readiness Fund.
Jeff joined FSE in 2006 originally within the Accelerator Fund team. He has over 20 years lending experience within structured and cash flow loan transactions, including senior and mezzanine funding in MBO/MBI transactions and early-stage SME expansion funding. Previously, Jeff was Head of Acquisition Finance within the London office of Ahli United Bank and a Director within the Acquisition Finance Department of Commerzbank AG, having earlier undertaken various roles within the credit-risk and corporate banking departments at National Westminster Bank.
Outside of work, Jeff enjoys hacking around golf courses and doing similar damage to his garden.
