Dan and Ben complete the Tower Street Finance team of 2021

As part of our continued growth, we’ve welcomed four new colleagues to the Tower Street Finance team over the last month and this week we’re excited to announce another two have joined us to complete our 2021 team.

Dan Holland is the new addition to our business development team and Ben Ivory will be strengthening our underwriting operation.

Before joining Tower Street Finance, Dan was working in the estate planning sector so was able to see first-hand the problems that people who were going through probate were facing.

As part of our business development team,  Dan now feels he has the opportunity to offer solutions to them: “I’ll be reaching out to professionals to let them know how we can help with solving their and their clients’ issues.

Having worked with problematic estates in the past I know how awful it is to have to say ‘no’ and at Tower Street our ethos is the exact opposite. Our products are the most useful I’ve seen in the sector for people who find themselves struggling with the probate process.

Ben’s background is in real estate lending and says although it’s a different type of lending to Tower Street Finance’s offering he brings many relatable skills. Ben’s joining the underwriting team and is passionate about how data can help deliver a great service to our clients.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in – it’s such an exciting proposition and the scale of the opportunity is huge. The products are unique to the market and I’m pleased to be joining the team at a stage where I know I can make a difference.”

Tower Street Finance


Tower Street Finance (TSF) was set up by an experienced management team who saw a need for relevant, accessible financial products which benefit administrators of estates, executors and beneficiaries. We are passionate about using insight, data and our considerable experience to help customers with innovative products and services, including those who may be in financial difficulty. We currently have four products which are aimed at the inheritance market and they all have a common DNA. There are:

  • No credit checks
  • No risk or personal liability
  • No charge over property
  • No monthly repayments
  • No requirement for a Will
IHT Loan The IHT Loan can help when estates are effectively ‘locked’ because the executor needs to pay the IHT to get the Grant, but needs the Grant to realise the assets to pay the IHT. It’s taken out by the executor/personal representative and can solve the problem. The money is used to pay HMRC and it’s a way of meeting the IHT liability to unlock the estate with no risk or need to take out a personal loan/bridging loan. Inheritance Advance (winner of Innovation of the Year, British Wills and Probate Awards 2020) An Inheritance Advance allows beneficiaries to access a proportion of their inheritance sooner, with the Advance repaid out of the proceeds of their inheritance. This solves the problem of beneficiaries asking when they’ll be able to get their money and you having to explain that the process is complicated and lengthy. Again, there’s no risk – if another Will emerges or assets take longer to sell or sell for less than anticipated, or another debt is discovered, we take the risk. Inheritance Dispute Funding (IDF) Inheritance Dispute Funding helps people who want to dispute a will but don’t have the money to fund the legal bills. We know that one in four people would dispute an inheritance if they felt it was unfairly distributed. Contesting a will can cost up to £5k in upfront costs and there’s no guarantee your case will be taken on – with IDF the solicitor gives their opinion on the case and win or lose – we take the risk. We pay the costs and then they’re repaid from the estate proceeds. Estate Expense Funding (EEF) Estate Expense Funding is for executors who face costs while they’re dealing with their responsibilities of administering an estate. These can be unexpected but we can help cover the costs until the inheritance is released Executors could be liable for expenses such as funeral costs, professional fees, house and garden maintenance and more. We pay the costs and then they’re repaid from the estate proceeds
