Crystal Specialist Finance has hired Harriet Smith as head of bridging finance, joining from Masthaven Bank where she worked as business development manager.


Smith (pictured) will be in charge of delivering future growth targets and will play an important role in the ongoing education programme of brokers through meetings, seminars and webinars.

The bridging finance team made up 30 per cent of completions at the master broker firm in 2018.

Crystal also said that key performance indicators saw the average time from application to completion down by 12 per cent, and a lower average monthly interest rate across completed deals with 14 separate lenders.

Smith said the bridging market was continuing to perform well, adding that she was looking forward to building on the foundations already laid at the firm.

Jo Breeden, managing director of Crystal Specialist Finance, said: “Harriet needs no introduction, her knowledge, calibre and experience will be a great asset to the business.

“An appointment of this magnitude reaffirms our commitment to brokers regarding our bridging proposition, we will make great strides forward in this sector under her lead.”
