Metrics solidifies market position with new appointments
Metrics Credit Partners has announced new appointments within its Investments Team, as the business cements its position as Australia’s leading non-bank corporate lender.
Mathew Fulton and Marc Hurwitz have been appointed as Investment Directors based in Sydney covering corporate origination. Both join from Investec Australia’s Corporate and Acquisition Finance (CAF) team, following Metrics’ successful acquisition of Investec’s CAF loan portfolio in March this year.

Mr Hurwitz was part of Investec’s Corporate and Acquisition Finance team for over 11 years. Prior to this, he held roles at Ellerston Capital, EIM and Goldman Sachs. Mr Hurwitz joins Metrics today.
