The RAW Mortgage Fund which was launched in May 2015 has recently passed the £100 million mark of Assets Under Management. The Fund has expanded rapidly in the last year even with a worldwide pandemic thrown into the mix. Since March 2021, the fund has grown from £80 million, the team has grown to 18 people, and moved to new offices on The Grange.
During lockdown, we took full advantage of remote working with flexible working arrangements that enabled further growth of the fund and stable employment for the team and Interns during unsettling times. We have welcomed employees of all types including students doing work experience, interns, graduates, part-time term-time contracts, and full-time employees. Whilst the Interns have not always been studying subjects related to financial services, RAW Capital Partners have subsequently employed two of them on a full-time basis at the end of their studies.
Commenting on the growth of the team, MD Tim Parkes said “Building the RAW Capital Partners team has been a pleasure with such great colleagues. We have grown from a team of four to eighteen over the last three years helping a number of young people begin their careers as well as welcoming several homemakers back to the workplace on part-time term-time contracts – both have helped us build a team with varied skills and an exciting future”
“Our £100 million milestone marks a key point in our growth story. The RAW Mortgage Fund has attracted a variety of investors seeking the benefits of consistent returns and capital security with local individuals invested alongside local companies, trust company clients, and insurance companies. I thank each and every one of them for their support.”
