Lendhub’s Asim Shirwani features in the Bridging and Commercial Power list 2021.

What they did in 2020 that kept the market moving: Asim joined Lendhub in the middle of lockdown and soon became a vital cog in the company. Within weeks, he had led the on-boarding of five new staff members and provided remote training and development. He filled the void caused by no longer being able to meet and train people in an office environment with multiple daily video calls and generally being available to staff 24/7 to assist with anything and everything.

He also further developed the Lendhub product range to ensure it fits the needs of the lender’s brokers and borrowers. Starting with Fixed Fee bridging, and with the borrower in mind, Asim worked hard to provide greater clarity when budgeting. He sourced excellent legal and valuation fees so there are no hidden surprises and is already looking at other ways we can improve other products and services.

Why they will be integral to the market’s recovery and growth in 2021: Asim’s many years of experience will continue to benefit the future new hires for Lendhub and, in turn, its brokers and borrowers. His attention to detail when reviewing and redesigning products will also ensure the lender is providing exactly what the market requires.
