Mint Bridging Becomes FIBA Member

Also featured in Bridging & Commercial about Mint Bridging now a FIBA member:

Mint Bridging becomes a member of FIBA

Altrincham, Cheshire - 14th May 2019: Mint Bridging, the award winning short-term bridging lender recognised in the industry for fast, flexible and fair lending, has just become the latest lender partner of FIBA, one of the UK’s key financial intermediary and broker associations.

With over 100 years of collective lending experience, Mint provides bridging, development and refurbishment loans as well as auction finance, re-bridging and commercial loans. In the near decade since it was formed, Mint has lent on a short-term basis in virtually every possible lending scenario.
Mint’s lending operation complements the focus and ethos of FIBA and membership will allow Mint to add its voice to the partners which already exist within FIBA.  

Mint’s aim is to offer its range of industry competitive products to FIBA members and provide them with access to Mint’s dedicated underwriters to work with. Membership will also provide Mint’s management team with timely regulatory development news and allow it to be part of the code of ethics that affects the finance industry.

“We are delighted that Mint Bridging have decided to join the FIBA Lender Panel at an exciting time in our market. As our lending proposition to members expands across the country and our membership continues to grow, we welcome Mint Bridging as a new lender partner here at FIBA.” Adam Tyler, Executive Chairman - FIBA

“This is the perfect time for us to join FIBA,” Andrew Lazare, Managing Director at Mint Bridging added. “We are at a stage in our growth where our success is increasingly making us a key industry player. Mint is keen to contribute our growing experience and knowledge to engagement across the sector and help shape its potential, both through discussion of future legislation and the work that the forum does in sharing new ideas and best practice.  Being a member will allow us to learn from other members too and will assist in the expansion of our business. As part of this key intermediary and broker association, Mint will stay ahead of trends relating to training and development, to provide the best possible service to our partners as well as aiding in the growth and retention of our staff. We are really looking forward to nurturing our membership with FIBA.”

Mint Bridging has been operating since 2011, offering short-term bridging loans up to £5 million that borrowers use to fund property purchases, refinance, second charge loans or development projects. As the business is privately funded, third parties do not dictate lending decisions. This results in faster loan conversions. 

For brokers looking for a rapid, flexible and original approach to borrowing, Mint has a team of 30 people with six mandated underwriters. Sinead Moynihan heads up the sales team, while Richard Showman manages the underwriting team. Andrew Lazare and industry magnate Mark Abrahams run the day-to-day business.
