With a carefully chosen team of experts in their fields including property banking professionals, CIPD qualified HR, chartered accountants, and experienced staff in all departments. Team MSP provide a positive workplace, with wellbeing prioritised for all staff.

Richard Bairstow, IT software developer highlights, “I was amazed by the work ethic at MSP. Everyone always works together to create solutions and be able to give the best to our clients. There is always something going on at MSP from charity fundraising to social events.”

Client-Centric Approach

Throughout this year of growth, our client relationships were at the forefront of the decisions to expand the team. We’ve continued to provide tailored financial solutions and exceptional customer service, working hard to provide a good relationship between us and our clients. Our expansion allows us to serve a broader range of clients, and our enduring presence reassures them that we are here to stay.

MSP Capitals’ growth in 2023, marked by a 26% expansion in our team, is a testament to our commitment to excellence and our dedication to sustainable and responsible growth. With 40 years of experience in the property finance sector, we are not just a growing company; we are a stable, trusted funding solution that clients can rely on. 

We are excited about the future and look forward to continuing to expand the team, looking forward to new faces here at MSP.
