In 1985 Jerry joined the finance industry as an independent credit and mortgage broker. To this day he has never left the sector, so has gained considerable experience arranging a wide range of finance facilities from secured loans to commercial mortgages for his clients.
He arranged his first bridging loan approximately 20 years ago, so has seen a lot of changes in this sector. This has been increasingly apparent over the past ten years, since the high street banks stopped providing bridging finance.
Jerry specialises in arranging bridging loans and development finance.
