Bridging finance firm hires former Link Lending underwriter


Specialist short term lender, Drawbridge Finance, has appointed the former underwriting manager of now-defunct bridging firm, Link Lending as its new credit manager.    

The appointment of Matt Smith has come as the firm states its bid to become a main player in the bridging market.  

Prior to Link Lending, Matt developed his credit skills with Money Partners Limited and igroup (GE Money) in various specialist credit management and underwriting roles.

Commenting on the appointment, Jonathan Samuels, CEO of Drawbridge Finance said: “We are thrilled to welcome Matt to the Drawbridge Finance team and have no doubt he will be a great asset as we look to capitalise on a stabilising mortgage market. Drawbridge is setting out its stall to be the leading force in the specialist lending space and this will be the first of a number of key appointments we intend to make in the next few weeks.


“Drawbridge Finance currently offers some of the most creative products in the short term sector, including Extended and Medium Term products and we intend to continue to innovate moving forward.”
