With over 30 years’ commercial property investment and development experience, Toby began his career in retail and hospitality. He launched First Property Finance in 1989, which specialised in selling commercial mortgages, and later set up First Property Funding Ltd, which grew his client base and moved into investment and development finance.
In 1992, Toby expanded his skillsets, moving away from finance broking and acting for a select group of wealthy individuals, advising them on property investment, lease management, acquisitions, and finance structures. Having gained the experience and knowledge which allowed him to create Waterbridge Group Ltd in 1993, Toby was able to integrate his clients and establish many different private client property funds investing in the UK, with assets under management totalling around £300 million.
Waterbridge also carried out property development, including planning, construction and the operation of hotels, serviced offices and self storage. Toby now brings his vast wealth of experience and contacts to his select Maritime Capital clients, helping them manage their assets in the most beneficial ways possible.
HEAD OF ASSET MANAGEMENT
Max began his career as an investment agent for a private limited company, initially charged with the negotiations, due diligence research and management of legal parties for commercial property acquisitions. Having gained experience and many contacts in these fields, Max set up as an independent investment agent for several HNWIs. This allowed him to be brought on to various private client projects, involving refinancing London portfolios and producing asset management reports.
With the strengthening of his client-agent relationships and gained knowledge from previous deals, Max became an asset manager for some of his investment clients. He advised on acquisitions, management, finance broking and asset management strategies for their portfolios. Max now brings his experience and agile approach to Maritime Capital clients.
HEAD OF PROPERTY
Neil has had a varied career, serving in the British Army from 1974 to 1998 in numerous destinations around the world, covering a number of diverse and challenging operational, logistical and administrative roles. On leaving the Army in 1998, he worked for a HNW entrepreneur in commercial property and real estate. This was the start of 22 years in the very challenging and continually evolving commercial property market. Responsibilities included acquiring, disposing and managing a mixed portfolio of industrial, office and retail properties across the UK, valued at around £300 million and managing 250 tenants. In 2009, Neil set up his own commercial property-real estate consultancy business, Greenfield Asset & Property Management.
Greenfield provides asset and property management services to clients seeking solutions for distressed assets, including private property investors, small- and medium-sized firms, banks and administrators. Clients comprise both landlords and tenants, which allows Greenfield to assess and understand the brief from both sides. Neil is well connected within the industry, with strong analytical and problem-solving skills, which he now brings to his Maritime Capital clients.
