Shawbrook to continue NACFB sponsorship
Shawbrook Bank will act as title sponsor of trade body the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) for the fourth year running, it has confirmed.

The specialist lender renewed its sponsorship of the trade body event in order to help it deliver more education, innovation and value across the commercial finance market.

This was especially important in light of the recent changes to the property tax regime and developments such as Brexit and the regulator’s new affordability requirements live as of January, it said.

Apart from connecting brokers and lenders NACFB also enforces a code of practice for commercial finance practitioners and lobbies lawmakers on behalf of the industry.

Shawbrook commercial mortgages managing director Karen Bennett said: “We are proud to commit to the NACFB for a further 12 months to help deliver more education, innovation and value across this highly competitive market.

“Their commitment to transparency, not to mention their advocacy of the many benefits to customers of using a professional intermediary, is just one of many reasons why continuing as title sponsor for an additional year was an easy decision for us.”

NACFB interim CEO Rob Lankey (pictured) added: “As we embark on a New Year, we’re proud to be standing shoulder to shoulder with Shawbrook in our passion for quality and high standards in the commercial finance market.”
