The KIS Team

Jerry Matthews

Jerry Matthews

Commercial Manager & Head of Bridging
Experience: 33 Years

In 1985 Jerry joined the finance industry as an independent credit and mortgage broker. To this day he has never left, 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 eight years, since the high street banks stopped providing bridging finance.

Jerry specialises in arranging bridging loans and development finance.

In September 2015 Neil made the decision to retire, although still working part time so that he can continue to look after some of his long term clients.

Alan Andrews

Alan Andrews

Commercial Consultant & Web Marketing
Experience: 22 Years

Following a short career in aviation, and the leisure industry, in 1996 Alan started work in the finance industry as a credit broker.

Over the past 10 years he has specialised in arranging large, and often complex, bridging loans for businesses in needs of urgent finance, and development finance for property developers.

During his career as a broker, it soon became evident that Alan had a talent for marketing, generating large numbers of finance applications with just a small marketing budget. Marketing is often the largest cost for finance companies, meaning the considerable savings that Alan makes the company are ultimately passed on to our customers.

Alan likes to keep up with new technology and developments, these days specialising in online marketing.
