Mint Bridging

Roxann Robinson says she is thrilled after Mint Bridging confirmed her recruitment as an underwriter within the team, headed by Richard Showman.

The bridging lender's Showman, who is head of underwriting at the business, says the appointment will reinforce the company's commitment to strengthening its 2nd charge offering.

Roxann previously worked for five years at Barclays as a senior underwriter and more recently at TFC Homeloans, building relationships with brokers on complex mortgage cases. She is said to have a strong knowledge of lending criteria and is an expert on 2nd charges and the commercial lending market.

Roxann’s knowledge of 2nd charges is something that Mint Bridging has been keen to exploit as a strength to their product offering, says Showman, who has a team of more than 30 employees, including six mandated underwriters

He said: “Many brokers don’t know that we offer this service and we complete many 2nd charge loans a month. Roxann’s expertise will be vital to the team to ensure that we have her expertise in this sometimes tricky area. She is becoming a great asset to our ever expanding department.”

Meanwhile, Roxann added: “I am thrilled to join Mint and know my banking and finance experience, especially in the arena of 2nd charges, will help the team grow and flourish. I love the challenge that such a rapidly growing business has to offer me.”

Mint Bridging has been operating since 2011, offering uniquely structured, handcrafted short-term bridging loans (up to £5 million) to be used towards property purchases, refinance, second charge loans or development projects.

As the business is privately funded, lending decisions are not dictated by third party financiers, resulting in Mint’s brand strategy generating faster loan conversions. The business is run by Andrew Lazare and industry magnate, Mark Abrahams.
