Shawbrook Bank launches podcast series
Shawbrook Bank has launched a podcast series, ‘A Conversation with Shawbrook’, as a platform for the broker community to share their experiences of doing business in the current climate.
Emma Cox (pictured), sales director of property finance at Shawbrook Bank, along with guests from the broker community, will discuss events across the property market, as well as sharing practical hints and tips.
In the first episode, Phil Gray, managing director of Watts Commercial Finance will discuss how the Watts family has navigated property market restrictions, the challenge of moving to a remote environment, and the main issues facing the broker and investor community as the focus shifts to the UK’s recovery.
Cox said: “Over the last few months we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how we adjust to support our friends and colleagues in the broker community.
“This podcast is about creating a forum to connect with brokers and hear their views on the market, the challenges they face, and the lessons learned as focus turns to how we emerge through these unique times stronger for it.
“Partnerships are such a big part of our business and it was a pleasure to catch up with Phil and get his perspective on the future, as restrictions ease.”
Gray added: “I was honoured to be asked by Shawbrook to take part in their first podcast and enjoyed discussing with Emma, COVID-19, the lockdown and the effects on our amazing industry.
“We have uncertain times ahead but I really feel that the broker market in the UK, supported by outstanding lenders like Shawbrook, is well placed to navigate through the coming months – assisting and supporting clients with the funding they require to re-establish and grow their businesses, whilst also protecting and supporting the employees within our industry.”
