Payton Capital branches into Sydney



Payton Capital has announced its expansion into Sydney in response to increased demand in the market for bespoke investment and lending services.

The Melbourne based boutique investment management company specialises in the provision of wholesale debt to real estate developers and origination of attractive risk-adjusted investment products for investors.

The Sydney arm will aid Payton Capital’s continued growth, presenting a diverse portfolio of products to investors, brokers and developers in Sydney and wider New South Wales.

Mike Healy (pictured directly below) has been appointed investment director by strengthening its distribution arm in Sydney.

Healy will be responsible for business development and investor relationship management particularly in relation to institutional acquisition. Over the last three decades, Healy has worked across banking, fixed income, investment and funds management in organisations such as BNP Paribas, NAB and FIIG Securities.

“My decision to join the Payton Capital team weighed up many factors,” Healy said.

“Ultimately it was the opportunity to join an established firm and expand their position into NSW and Queensland. The provision of capital, stable income solutions for investors, and the strong ESG culture within the company also played a big part in my decision.”

Matthew Wang (pictured directly below) also joins the team as investment director, specialising in investor relations and business development on the eastern seaboard.

Wang has extensive experience in debt management and investment, having worked in the finance industry for over 14 years with organisations including Westpac, HSBC and Citi.

Luke Hill (pictured directly below) takes on the role of relationship director for the Sydney office.

Hill has over a decade’s experience in commercial property finance, having previously worked with BankSA, Bankwest, Barclays and ING. He will be responsible for loan origination and business development, deal structuring, credit assessment and asset management.

Brett Brisco (pictured directly below), meanwhile, has been welcomed as state manager property finance.

Brisco comes with significant experience in property and corporate finance developed over 20 years within the corporate lending environment and with private development firms in both Australia and the UK.

Throughout his career, he has held senior roles with Commonwealth Bank, Westpac, NAB and ANZ by driving new business origination and deal structuring.

“In recent years, commercial real estate debt has gained prominence as an alternative fixed income asset class that offers investors strong, stable and consistent returns,” said Payton Capital CEO and executive director David Payton.

“Non-bank lending has emerged to become the preferred choice for property developers and brokers who seek fast, simple and tailored lending solutions. The industry is growing at a rapid pace, and expanding into Sydney was a natural progression for us.”

Payton said with a growing team in its new Sydney offices, Payton Capital would now expand its reach into newer markets with further growth on the horizon.

“We look forward to bringing our values-led approach, premium service and extensive product offering to investors and borrowers in New South Wales this year,” he said.
