Who Are Finch

Finch was incorporated in March 2021 by Nicky Finnieston and Stephen Chambers with the objective of providing partner-level service to a number of retained clients in the retail, leisure and investment markets. Alana Coyle joined the team in May 2022.

We saw a niche in the market for solutions based advice informed by a thorough understanding of the evolution in occupier demand in our key sectors. We wanted to couple this with quality inventive marketing embracing the sea change towards social media and prop tech. 

We fundamentally offer honest, no nonsense advice.

Nicky has in excess of 20 years experience working throughout the UK having been based at various times in London, Glasgow and Belfast. Nicky is a specialist in Retail and Leisure, and was formerly a partner of one of Ireland’s largest property firms where he was responsible for both the Retail and Investment teams.
Alana has extensive experience in the Northern Ireland property market, before joining Finch she was a director and Head of Retail in NI at the world’s largest real estate consultancy advising a range of local, national and international clients on all aspects of the retail and leisure market in Northern Ireland.
Stephen has worked in commercial property and banking for 15 years. He has worked with Ireland’s biggest bank and dealt with some of their largest portfolios under management and has also transacted investment deals across the UK and has a particularly strong track record in debt funded projects.
