Additionally, an expert from the auto finance industry joins Zoot. Jackson added, “We further expanded our European auto finance and asset finance market footprint in 2016 and we will continue to focus on these industries in 2017.

These appointments coincide with Zoot’s commitment to much larger premises in Leeds. Jackson commented, “As the largest financial centre outside of London, Leeds has proven to be an ideal location for Zoot’s UK business and we are proud to commit to further expansion here. The talent pool in Leeds is exceptional and more than doubling our office space will accommodate the continued growth we expect in 2017 and beyond.”
