Matthew Anderson joins Bath & West as commercial director




Bridging lender Bath & West Finance has appointed Matthew Anderson (pictured above) as commercial director.

Matthew has more than 25 years of experience in the bridging and development finance sector and was previously in charge of development lending at Amicus Finance.

He joins former colleague Martyn Smith, founder and director at Bath & West Finance — which provides bridging and development loans to investors mainly in the West Country — and will be involved in the company’s day-to-day operations in addition to developing relationships with all stakeholders in the business.

“I chose to take on the Bath & West role because [it values] experience and judgement, understanding that there are good deals to be done — particularly outside of London in the M4 corridor and down to the south coast — but that getting the terms right so they work for both investors and developers is key," said Matthew.

“I’m very much looking forward to working with Martyn and the team to help deliver this.”

Martyn added: “Matt has long been involved with our business, working closely with us during his time at Fincorp several years ago.

“His experience and hands-on approach to managing deals — both before funding is approved and during development — is crucial to maintaining a robust loan book, something we value highly.

“In addition, his contacts across the short-term lending industry will be invaluable as we continue to grow the business.”
