Yesterday our two national account managers Simon Nicholson and Gary Lomax attended the NACFB Commercial Finance Expo. The event was based at Birmingham NEC and allowed them both to network with brokers and specialist finance companies. This year’s event marked its tenth year and was its busiest so far.
Simon and Gary attended a range of presentations including one about the benefits of short-term finance by Nick Jones from Together. The session highlighted how Bridging loans have changed since the 1960’s to the present day. The presentation identified how the growth in Bridging applications has increased in Cities across the UK for flats and high-rise buildings due to the shortage of housing. The talk also identified the popularity of using Bridging Finance for refurbishments and tax bills.
To conclude Simon commented “The event overall ran very well and was a good opportunity for networking due to the wide range of lenders. This may provide an opportunity in the future to broaden our lender options”. Gary elaborated “it was great to catch up with our existing range of lenders including Together and gain potential new contacts”.
