Masthaven Secured Loans has hired former Prestige Finance underwriter Shelley Connelly as underwriting manager.
Andrew Bloom, director of MSL, said: “MSL has already built up a reputation for its professionalism and ability to understand and complete on even the most complex and challenging cases.
“As we continually seek to improve and evolve, we are delighted to have someone of Shelley’s calibre join us to lead the underwriting team.
“Her pedigree is second to none and I have no doubt our service to introducers will further develop as Masthaven continues to build its presence in the secured lending sector.”
Connelly added: “MSL has become an important player in the secured lending intermediary market and I am looking forward to bringing my experience to bear in order to further develop our underwriting capability.
“The industry faces exciting challenges this year and my goal is to ensure that from an underwriting perspective MSL is able to deliver a service which will be beneficial for clients and makes our introducers want to use us again and again.”
