Shawbrook Bank has announced that it will renew its commitment to the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers, signing as title sponsor for 2017.
This strengthens a bond which began in 2014 when Shawbrook confirmed its first year as title sponsor of the NACFB. Since then the NACFB has continued to grow in stature and scope with nearly 140 lenders associated with the organisation, helping to support the broker community across a range of markets. Shawbrook Bank has also prospered in that time, further evolving its award winning product range and service strategy and becoming a FTSE 250 listed company in the process.
Karen Bennett, Managing Director of Shawbrook Commercial Mortgages stressed the significance of this relationship for the specialist lender:
“We are proud to commit to the NACFB for a further 12 months to help deliver more education, innovation and value across this highly competitive market. Their commitment to transparency, not to mention their advocacy of the many benefits to customers of using a professional intermediary, is just one of many reasons why continuing as title sponsor for an additional year was an easy decision for us.
“The last three years have provided many challenges for all those involved in this market yet nonetheless the NACFB has always managed to provide strong and sensible leadership for its many patrons. This is to be commended and one of many reasons we are proud to continue our close relationship with them.”
NACFB interim CEO Rob Lankey added:
“On behalf of everyone within the NACFB, we’re delighted to have Shawbrook on board as title sponsor once again. Both the NACFB and Shawbrook have prospered during our association with each other which is no coincidence. As we embark on a New Year, we’re proud to be standing shoulder to shoulder with Shawbrook in our passion for quality and high standards in the commercial finance market.
“Our mutual commitment to being a source of expertise for intermediaries, as well as our focus on supporting the delivery of positive outcomes for their clients is hardwired into the DNA of both organisations. This stands us in good stead for the inevitable challenges we will face in 2017 and beyond, and I would like to extend my thanks to Shawbrook for their ongoing support.”
