Tuscan Capital, the short-term property finance specialist, has today announced that Jade Lidiard has joined the lender as an underwriter.

Jade joins Tuscan Capital from United Trust Bank (UTB), where she spent a year as an underwriter/relationship manager in structured finance.

Prior to that, she worked for nearly five years at MT Finance where she started in the new business department and over time worked her way up to the position of underwriter.

Jade began her finance career at MT Finance after graduating from Portsmouth University with a first class honours degree in Psychology.

She joins the underwriting team providing bespoke decisions across the lender’s short-term finance proposition and reports into Dena Thompson, Tuscan Capital’s head of credit and risk.

Tuscan Capital provides non-regulated bridging finance to the residential, commercial, semi-commercial, HMO and mixed-use real estate sectors in England and Wales.

Colin Sanders, CEO at Tuscan Capital, said:

“I’m very pleased to welcome Jade to Tuscan Capital. She joins to further improve the excellent underwriting standards that we are known for in the marketplace.

Since our launch of our Fast Track service, demand for our products has further increased and we fully expect this to continue in 2023.

Jade’s addition will further add to the wealth of experience in Dena’s team and we’re delighted to have her on board.”

Jade Lidiard, Underwriter at Tuscan Capital, commented:

 “It’s great to join Tuscan Capital and get back into the bridging market; I love the fast-paced nature of the sector.

It’s clear that everyone at Tuscan really plays their part in making it such a dynamic place to work; it really is a lender that is truly responsive to the demands of the market. I can’t wait to get started.”
