F&P Sponsors appoints new consultant to focus on green-tech sector

Peer-to-peer funding specialist F&P Sponsors has appointed former financier and specialist investment manager Edward Williams as a Consultant, to focus on supporting the funding aspirations of companies in the clean and green technology sectors.

FP eco appointmentEdward has over 25 years' experience in finance including 11 years at Merrill Lynch International, where he held several positions including Head of Equity Derivatives and Convertible Bond Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Co-Head of Equity Linked Products for EMEA.

He also has particular knowledge of funding and developing opportunities within the clean-technology and renewable energy sectors, and has been exposed to the significant challenges that businesses face during their development stages.

Ivor Freedman, Director at F&P Sponsors, says Edward's record in financing and advising businesses in need of finance is exceptional: "His specialist focus on clean and green technology also provides our business with a significant opportunity for expansion in what is a fast moving and growing industry."
