Alternative Bridging Corporation has strengthened its underwriting team with the recruitment of Leigh Harwood, who returns to the lender having worked there previously.

Leigh, who has nearly a decade of specialist underwriting experience, previously worked at Alternative Bridging between 2018 and 2020 and has held roles at Streambank, C&M Wealth International and GE Money.

He will use his experience and expertise to help build on the lender’s strong reputation for providing decisions with speed and certainty, whilst also being able to structure solutions for complex cases.

Leigh Harwood, Underwriter, Alternative Bridging Corporation, says:

“I’m delighted to return to Alternative Bridging and the excellent Underwriting team here.

My time at the business previously was unfortunately cut short due to the Covid pandemic, but Alternative Bridging has always stood out from the crowd, based on its reputation for making complex cases straightforward, its depth of property expertise and its innovative products.

It’s good to be back!”

Claire O’Brien, Head of Underwriting at Alternative Bridging Corporation, says:

“A specialist property lender can only ever be as strong as its underwriting team and, at Alternative Bridging, I think we have one of the strongest in the industry.

Leigh is a great addition to that team and will add lots of value to our brokers and their clients.”
