The Bridging & Commercial Awards 2019 shortlist has been announced and (drumroll)… we’re so excited to confirm that Mint Bridging’s in the ‘Development Lender of the Year – Up to £10m’ category. The winners will be announced at the big event on 6th June. More details:

The shortlisted nominees have been revealed for the 2019 Bridging & Commercial Awards, in association with Market Financial Solutions.

The leading companies and individuals in the bridging, commercial, development, alternative finance and specialist banking markets have been shortlisted and are now in the running to win the industry’s most prestigious awards.

Over 2,000 votes were cast online, highlighting who the industry believes is deserving of the famed B&C gold gongs.

The B&C judging panels — made up of key lenders and brokers — narrowed down the longlist for each category after the nominations closed last Thursday (18th April).

This year, Together, United Trust Bank, MT Finance, Octane Capital, Precise Mortgages and Ortus Secured Finance are all in the running for the Bridging Lender of the Year award.

Together is also a contender for the Commercial Lender of the Year category, which it has won for the past two years.

Several new categories have been introduced this year, including Mezzanine Lender of the Year and Funding Partner of the Year, while Development Lender of the Year has been split into two categories: those that provide loans up to £10m and lenders that offer facilities above £10m.

The inaugural Mezzanine Lender of the Year category will see Beaufort Capital, Proseed Capital, Iron Bridge Finance and the Property Box Loan Company competing for the award.

All shortlisted nominees will be contacted directly regarding how to progress with their nomination(s).

The judging panels will gather on 17th May to determine the winners and highly commended in 22 categories.

Three additional award categories will be voted on solely by Medianett.

The names of the winners will be kept a closely-guarded secret until this year’s event at the Hurlingham Club on Thursday 6th June.
