Handcrafted short term bridging lender increases staff by 88 percent in the past year
Mint Bridging has ambitiously expanded its employee base across all divisions, an 88 percent increase from July 2016. With the paramount focus on developing their sales and underwriting teams, this pre-meditated objective is aligned with the company’s structure of exceeding customer expectations by offering only handcrafted loans.
Underwriter Samantha Herd came from Bridgebank Capital and joins Mint as the 30th employee. Her 10 years of property and underwriting experience is proving to be a valuable asset, since the company is taking on more complex and unique loan enquiries. A result of this scaling is from Mint aggressively growing their legal, underwriting, credit control, quantity surveyor and BDM divisions, providing clients a full, in-house service throughout the complete loan term.
Mint offers uniquely structured short term bridging loans, up to £5 million, to be used towards property purchases, refinance or development projects. As the business is privately funded, lending decisions are not dictated by third party financiers, resulting in their niche brand strategy generating faster loan conversions that justify the employee growth.
As Andrew Lazare, Managing Director, clarifies “Our focus is now on developing our sales and underwriting teams, that aligns with our business plans to provide 100% handcrafted loans for every borrowers needs across England and Wales.” He adds “It’s vital that we continue to maintain our high levels of customer service for increased referral and lending activities, while strengthening our broker relationships.”
For brokers looking for a fast, flexible and original approach to borrowing, Mint Bridging is a genuine alternative to the more traditional, mainstream bridging lenders. Their entrepreneurial approach to lending has contributed to the company’s success, with now six mandated underwriters, providing expertise and practical hands-on help.
