Bhogal (pictured), who previously worked for Aspen’s parent company S&U PLC in the positions of financial accountant and company secretary, will monitor and forecast business performance.
In line with Aspen’s time-based service targets, she will also be involved in overseeing the administrators for fund releases for loans and drawdowns, which establishes pay-out of funds within three hours of receiving a report on title from solicitors, followed by same-day broker commission payments.
Jack Coombs, director at Aspen, said: “We’ve known Manjeet for many years and she has got the skill set to really make a positive impact on our business, her grounding in the credit market and knowledge of S&U’s operations gives her an in-depth knowledge and experience which is second-to-none.”
