Bridging & Commercial has launched its third filmed roundtable session, which discusses why we need to bring more brokers into the bridging market and how the industry plans to do this.

The event — which took place on Friday 26th July at Watson Farley & Williams’ offices in London and was chaired by B&C editor Beth Fisher — was supported by Together.

Richard Tugwell, group intermediary relationship director at Together, explained how distribution had changed in the bridging market over the past few years and why it is so important in the current economic climate for brokers to be aware of bridging finance.

Specialist brokers were also in attendance to offer their thoughts, including Harpreet Chadha, director at Noble Life; Sam Norris, senior property finance broker at Bond Finance Ltd; Liz Syms, CEO at Connect Mortgages; and James Chisnall, director at City Finance Brokers. 

Ranjeev Kumar, partner at Watson Farley & Williams, also gave a legal perspective on how the market perception was out of kilter with the reality and the impact of a variable quality of products across the market.

The discussion also assessed whether networks would become more involved in the specialist finance market, such as bridging, and the quality vs quantity debate on attracting new brokers to the space.
