Market Financial Solutions (MFS) has appointed Ryan Magee as its new General Counsel.
Having graduated from the University of Oxford in 2008, Magee has 15 years’ experience working as a legal professional in the real estate sector, with particularly strong skills in relation to property finance and corporate finance.
He trained as a solicitor while at Allen & Overy before rising to become a Senior Associate for Real Estate Finance and Corporate Lending Team during a nine-year stint at the firm. More recently, Magee spent more than four years at OakNorth Bank, acting as Senior Director for Legal & Transaction Management for much of that time.
Magee joins the MFS team to provide legal counsel across the company’s operations, assisting the London-based specialist lender as it continues to scale at pace.
MFS has grown significantly over the past two years, with £1 billion currently available in funding and a new line of institutional funding worth £400 million recently unveiled. The company is on track to achieve its goal of growing its overall loan book to £1.5 billion in 2023. It has also doubled its employee headcount since the start of 2022, with more than 100 employees now on the team.
Ryan Magee, General Counsel at MFS, said: “I’m delighted to have joined MFS. The company has a stellar track record, and its growth over recent years has been hugely impressive. I was immediately struck by the leadership’s ambitious plans – there is a clear collective goal to expand the business, constantly deliver better products and services, and provide unwavering support to the broker and investor communities. Having worked across a number of real estate roles, I am excited to apply my experience to help MFS push ahead and achieve many more impressive feats in the years to come.”
Paresh Raja, CEO of MFS, added: “It is great to have Ryan join the MFS team. He brings a huge amount of skill and experience in the fields of property finance and real estate transactions, so he will undoubtedly play a key role in supporting us on our journey.”
