David is a Director of Privilege Holdings Limited (formerly Eastern Counties Finance Limited) and Nucleus Commercial Finance Limited and serves as a board advisor to Prestige Fund Management Limited – focusing on asset-based lending, leasing and finance solutions. He also advises on the company’s proprietary investments, as well as researching new investment opportunities.
He brings a wealth of experience in commercial asset-based lending and finance activity, having worked for Barclays Bank plc from 1974-2001, where his last role involved acting as a Corporate Manager responsible for a mixed portfolio of 150 small and medium-sized enterprise clients with a bias towards property development/investment and franchised motor dealers. From 2001-2010 he was employed by Allied Irish Bank where he built from scratch over 5 years a GBP 160 million loan book which had minimum defaults and focused on charitable, healthcare and education sectors, unlike most other British teams which were heavily exposed to the property sector.
From 2010-2013 he was persuaded to rejoin Barclays where he acted as a Relationship Director with a portfolio of over 40 corporate clients (sales turnover GBP 5m – 50m) biased towards professional service sectors. He brings a particular set of professional skills including credit analysis, credit negotiation, business risk analysis, market risk analysis and operational risk analysis as well as previous experience at British Insurance Association, London.
