Fluent Money Group launches bridging division

Fluent Money Group has appointed John Hardman to head up its newly launched bridging finance division, Fluent Bridging Ltd.

John joins as managing director of the new arm from Bridging Finance Solutions, where he was head of sales.  

He comes with considerable experience in the sector having held roles with RBS, Santander, Barclays and Aldermore Bank.

John plans to cement strong relationships between Fluent and lenders active in this sector.

The bridging brand will complement existing divisions of the Fluent group: Fluent Money (second charge mortgages), Fluent Mortgages, Fluent Lifetime (equity release), and Fluent Protect (insurance).

Fluent Money Group CEO, Kevin Hindley, is looking forward to John making a “major contribution to the business”.

“At a senior level, we took the strategic decision to expand and develop into the bridging market because it complements our existing offering and solidifies our position as one of the leading mortgage brokers in the UK,” said Kevin.  

“We’re pleased to welcome John to the team and look forward to him working with our highly professional and regulated lender partners to deliver a high-quality product and service.”

John commented: “Each member of the Fluent senior management has real pedigree and a track record of success, so it’s an honour to be asked to join the group and build the short-term property finance arm. 

“The whole team have clearly demonstrated a hunger and desire to be the very best in each sector of lending they become involved in; they have a will to win and a clear strategy to achieve success while putting their clients and lender relationships first.”  

John’s first role will be to embark upon a swift recruitment drive, targeting high-calibre, experienced individuals.
