Lionsgate Capital, based in the island’s capital Palma, has built up an excellent reputation in recent years as one of the best financial brokers on Mallorca. The company was founded by successful entrepreneur and art collector Drew Aaron from America and co-founder Juanita Casanas, a former director at Banco Santander. However, the Lionsgate Capital team offers much more than just mortgage loans, but also seeks to meet the often complex and demanding needs of their clients, who aspire to a certain lifestyle and are accustomed to a high level of service.
With well over 20 years of expertise in high quality mortgage lending, this has brought a whole new standard to the island and the whole of Spain. Clients working with Lionsgate Capital can expect full A-Z advice as the mortgage specialists negotiate the best rates and solutions within their banking network. But the firm also acts as an insurance broker, able to arrange solid protection for property, cars, yachts, art or other valuables.
As you would expect from a team backed by a founder who was named one of the top 50 art collectors worldwide under the age of 50 by Modern Painters Magazine along with his wife Hana Soukupova, Lionsgate Capital is the best art advisor you will find on the island. Dynamic, extremely professional and with a very good network, Drew Aaron and his colleagues support their clients in discovering and personally benefiting from the vibrant world of art.
