We have known Andrea Juniper for a long time and the experience, knowledge, lender relationships and expertise she and her team bring is a huge benefit to our business and the growing base of introducers. Only Bridging is a well-established, awarding winning brand which we will steadily invest in. In 2017 we will continue our aggressive growth though organic and acquisitive activity.”

Andrea Juniper, Only Bridging Managing Director:

“This is an incredibly exciting time for the team and I. I have known Paul and the senior management team of Loan.co.uk for many years. I know they share my ambition and passion for this sector of the market and I’m delighted I can bring my experience and expertise and be a part of making the ongoing growth plans a reality. The synergies were immediately obvious to me and we are already seeing the benefits in distribution, technology, marketing and compliance support.”

Roger Morris of Precise Mortgages:

“This is great news for both companies and I expect this to have a positive impact for customers, introducers and lenders alike. I have known Andrea and Paul for many years and both share a passion for providing exceptional service to their intermediary partners. They both have the knowledge, drive, contacts and expertise to grow aggressively; this is an exciting combination.”
