Peer-to-peer lender Assetz Capital has appointed Mehwish Mirza as a senior relationship manager to its bridging team.
Mirza (pictured) joins from Glenhawk, where she spent nearly two years operating as a business development manager, following experience in the same role at Gatehouse Bank and prior to that, at Together.
Mirza started her career with a seven-year tenure at Al Rayan Bank, where she became the first woman to be promoted as a business development manager in the lender’s history.

“It’s a great time to be joining Assetz Capital as we grow our bridging offering,” said Mirza.
“I have been impressed by the team’s ambition, and I look forward to delivering our real-world bridging solutions to clients.”
“As a well-established market-leader and go-to lender for property development and commercial mortgages, we are focused on building the same high standards of reputation and delivery in the short-term finance world,” said Mark Standley, national commercial director at Assetz Capital.
“The core ingredient will always be having the very best people, so I am delighted to welcome Mehwish to Assetz Capital.
“Mehwish has extensive experience in the bridging and business development space, and she has already progressed a number of quality opportunities for us.”
In July, Assetz Capital appointed two relationship directors, Laleta Buctkuar and Colin Mottram, to its bridging team.
During the same month, Assetz Capital became the second P2P lending platform to be accredited to the recovery loan scheme, after lending £370m through the coronavirus business interruption loan scheme.
