Benson Hersch, chief executive of the ASTL said:

“Market Financial Solutions is a reputable lender which lends in a number of different areas with a professional approach and a focus on business.  Its membership will add to the diversity of the ASTL which is helping to make it such a thriving trade body.  Our aim continues to be to add value to our members while raising the standards of the bridging industry.  All of our members sign up to a Code of Conduct and a Value Charter which should give confidence to brokers and borrowers that they are dealing with a responsible and ethical lender and we welcome other lenders who are willing to operate to these high standards.”

Paresh Raja, CEO of Market Financial Solutions said:

“We have operated in the bridging market for seven years so it was a logical step to join the ASTL as a member to prove to the advisers and borrowers that we deal with that we are a professional and responsible company.  We value the growing role that the ASTL plays in terms of promoting bridging lending and working with the regulator and the Treasury to help protect all lenders in this sector.”
