15th August 2012


With the Funding For Lending Scheme helping to reduce rates in the residential world, we take a look at the more intriguing and oft misunderstood world of Specialist Finance, Bridging and Development Finance.

Host Andrew Montlake (@montysblog to you and I) is joined by Special Guest Alan Cleary, who is the Managing Director of Precise Mortgages.

Together with our very own Julian Ingall, who is Director of Coreco Specialist Finance, we discuss some of the issues around specialist lending, bridging / development deals and near prime lending.

We also chat about the Funding for Lending Scheme, loan pricing and transparency, as well as the challenges that high street lenders face.
