The Mortgage Lender and Oblix Capital make key appointments
The Mortgage Lender has expanded its onsite underwriting team by hiring Diane McLoughlin as regional underwriter for the South East, while Oblix Capital has appointed Richard Payne as new director of development.


Diane McLoughlin (pictured) has joined from Capital Home Loans where she has been operations manager for the last two and a half years. Prior to this experience, she was with Kensington Mortgages.

McLoughlin is The Mortgage Lender’s second onsite underwriter appointment marking a closer working relationship between the lender and its packager partners.

She will be able to discuss cases with brokers and make an instant decision, speeding up the underwriting process and time to offer.

The Mortgage Lender deputy chief executive Peter Beaumont said: “Diane brings a huge amount of experience to the role and her appointment underlines our commitment to working more closely with our partners and making it easier for brokers to find a borrowing solution for their customers.”

Diane McLoughlin said: “I wanted to get back into lending, saw the team was expanding and the new brand and approached TML about a role. The brand is fantastic, it is bright, colourful and happening.

“I get real life lending and I’m looking forward to helping the Buy to Let Business by being onsite, quick to respond and thinking outside the box on underwriting.”


Oblix Capital

Richard Payne has joined Oblix Capital from Bank of London and the Middle-East (BLME) where he most recently held the position as head of real estate finance.

Payne’s experience within the sector is emphasised having held director roles at Deutsche Bank, Turner & Townsend, and Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander.

Rishi Passi, CEO at Oblix Capital, said he was pleased to have Richard on board.

He added: “He brings extensive knowledge coupled with a comprehensive understanding of the development market at a time where Oblix is going from strength to strength.

“I have no doubt he’ll have an immediate impact on the growth of our development loan book.”

Richard Payne added: “The business is expanding and growing its development lending platform leveraging off the impressive development projects Oblix have funded already.

“I am looking forward to working with the team and introducing new clients and new projects over the coming months.”
