Ben Lloyd, managing director of Pure Property Finance, said, “we find finance for many businesses and property investors buying offices and we often wonder what happens within them once the people move in.”

“Speaking to one client recently and hearing a favourite song playing in the background led us to chat about music and ponder whether we thought the Pure Property Finance musical tastes matched those of other office workers around the world. Turns out, we have similar songs featured in ours, so we must be pretty on trend!”
