HMT are delighted to announce another key appointment, with Jack Longden joining as a Debt Advisory Associate Director.

Jack is a multi-disciplined advisor with experience across early-stage growth, sponsored leverage and corporate M&A funding.

Before joining HMT, Jack was a founding director of Natwest’s £100m venture and growth fund supporting early-stage technology businesses, and prior to that was also part of Natwest’s Mid-Market Leveraged Finance team.

Whilst in Leveraged Finance, Jack successfully delivered 60 debt transactions supporting MBOs, growth funding, recapitalisations and acquisition financing across a range of end-sectors and deal structures.

Jack’s structured and venture debt experience will both underpin and extend HMT’s existing debt advisory capability, as well as complement existing solutions for early stage and growth businesses exploring their funding options.

Jack Longden commented:

“I’m delighted to be joining the team at HMT, a firm I have worked with and admired for many years. Having seen the benefits of their agile and client-centric approach first-hand, I’m excited to be able to further develop and expand their support of entrepreneurial businesses with a particular focus on debt advisory.”

Andrew Thomson, Managing Partner, commented:

“We are delighted to further strengthen our business with the appointment of Jack, who brings a unique and invaluable blend of debt advisory experience to support both our early stage technology and mid-market clients and transactions. To maintain the high quality of our advice against a backdrop of unprecedented levels of demand for our services, it is essential we continue to make high calibre appointments such as Jack. We anticipate making further similar announcements during the remainder of 2021.”
