 Our Team

Nicholas Dutton


As a property investment specialist with a strong finance background, including personal and commercial banking. Nicholas has previously managed a portfolio of property clients with a turnover close to £25 million.

“As an aspiring entrepreneur venturing into property investing myself, I enjoy working with like-minded, driven individuals. I am an active member of Progressive Property Network, Property Investors Network, Property Hub, and Midlands Property Forum, which means I can relate to my clients and I’m continually learning a variety of strategies.

I am a confident, self-driven and organised individual with good morals and dreams for my future.

 I previously worked with Lloyds Bank for 5 years, which was an invaluable experience looking after property clients and property lending, as well as giving me a sound base for working in a strict compliance background. As Lloyds prides itself on customer service, I know how to interact and adapt to different clients and their needs.”

On a personal level, Nicholas is a player-manager for a Powerleague 5-a-side team and an avid carp angler, having fished across the country at leading venues.

Colin Dutton

Colin Dutton



With nearly 40 years’ experience in the financial services industry, Colin is a specialist when it comes to commercial funding. Colin’s “little black book” is full of highly valuable contacts that he uses to help our clients find the best finance deals.

 “I previously worked as an Area Director for Lloyds Bank and as a Senior Lending Manager for Norwich & Peterborough; this experience has given me an in-depth knowledge of the financial sector and the ability to package lending that money can’t buy.”

Outside of work, Colin is a keen golfer and he enjoys travelling and training at the gym.
