Investec makes two new appointments to enhance working capital offering


Investec Corporate and Investment Banking (“Investec”) has named Simon Carter as head of corporate bank sales, while Hugh Liddane joins as head of sales for the Investec Working Capital team.

Simon will ensure that Investec’s business clients have access to the full range of the bank’s products, helping growing businesses with a focus on working capital funding and treasury risk management services. He joined Amicus Commercial Finance in 2016, which was acquired by Investec in late 2017, and has 27 years’ experience in commercial finance.

Hugh Liddane joins from Lloyds Bank, where he worked with commercial and corporate clients across the UK, structuring and executing lending structures from unsecured through to fully collateralised. At Investec he leads the national sales team, driving new client acquisition and broadening capabilities to meet the demands of growth businesses.

“There’s a huge opportunity for Investec to further build on its support for growing businesses,” commented Simon. “We already have 86,000 clients in our asset finance business alone, and by ensuring that our clients have access to the full range of our services, we’ll be able to do even more to help UK SMEs grow.”
