Antonio Michael, CEO at Articus Finance, said: “We are delighted to welcome Assad to Articus. He is a skilled mortgage broker with nearly a decade’s experience in dealing with complex clients.

“Assad is a fantastic addition to team.”

Younis added: “I am excited to join a young and dynamic company and I am excited to grow with them. I am particularly excited to work alongside Antonio, who has more than 15 years of experience with high-net-worth clients.”

The move comes as Articus continues its planned recruitment drive and will be announcing further hires in the coming months.

Antonio added: “We have just surpassed our first year as a business, and business couldn’t be better. Despite the current climate, we have continued to secure the best deals for our clients and maintained our relationships with private banks and specialist lenders.

“Our goal for the remainder of 2020 is to bring on a few more faces, as we continue to grow. We aim to be the go-to brokerage for high-net-worth clients and their mortgage requirements.”
