Shawbrook Bank launches new podcast series


Emma Cox Shawbrook

‘A Conversation with Shawbrook’ will see Emma Cox, Sales Director of Property Finance, along with a rotating team of special guests from the broker community, bring you their take on what is happening across the property market. Expect open and honest conversations, combined with real life stories and practical tips.

In the first episode, Phil Gray, Managing Director of Watts Commercial Finance joins Emma Cox to discuss how the Watts family navigated the coronavirus crisis: the property market restrictions, the challenge of moving to a remote environment, and the main issues facing the broker and investor community as the focus shifts to the UK’s recovery.

Emma Cox, pictured, Sales Director of Property Finance at Shawbrook Bank comments:

“Over the last few months we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how we adjust to support our friends and colleagues in the broker community. This podcast is about creating a forum to connect with brokers and hear their views on the market, the challenges they face, and the lessons learned as focus turns to how we emerge through these unique times stronger for it.

Partnerships are such a big part of our business and it was a pleasure to catch up with Phil and get his perspective on the future, as restrictions ease.”

Phil Gray, Managing Director of Watts Commercial Finance comments:

“I was honoured to be asked by Shawbrook to take part in their first podcast and enjoyed discussing with Emma, Covid-19, the lockdown and the effects on our amazing industry. We have uncertain times ahead but I really feel that the broker market in the UK, supported by outstanding lenders like Shawbrook, is well placed to navigate through the coming months – assisting and supporting clients with the funding they require to re-establish and grow their businesses, whilst also protecting and supporting the employees within our industry.”
