Aspen adds to underwriting team
Aspen Bridging has appointed Katherine Wilson and Aqib Iqbal to its underwriting team.
Wilson joins as an underwriter and Iqbal has joined as an underwriter and risk team member.
Wilson arrives from Precise Mortgages where she worked as short-term lending processor in the bridging department.
Iqbal recently worked with Latham & Watkins LLP and previously was a legal administrator at Cooks LLP.
In total the appointments bring the overall headcount to over 20.
Jack Coombs, director at Aspen, said: “April was a record month where we lent £23m, and we are on track for having a record May.
“To meet the increasing workload throughout this year and beyond we need to keep adding staff, and as is the case with Aqib and Katherine we will look to bring in more recent graduates who we educate through our own comprehensive internal programmes to ensure their service is the best in the industry.”
