Stephen Johnson, Managing Director of Commercial Lending at Shawbrook Bank, said:

“We are a relatively new lender in the short term loan space, but we’ve already seen high demand for our short term loan products which offer competitive pricing and fee structures.

“Shawbrook’s appetite to lend to professional investors is strong, and we’re constantly looking at ways to improve our products and processes to meet the needs of our brokers and clients. Shawbrook has some very ambitious plans, and we’re confident we can continue to build on the positive momentum we’ve generated since the launch of our STL range”.
