We speak to Head of Lending, Chris Chew:




What is the best thing about being in the secured loan business?

That every day is different which keeps things fresh and exciting.

What keeps you focussed?

My wife. She’d kill me if I wasn’t.

What qualities do you look for in your employees or colleagues?

A willingness to work and learn alongside me.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

Pessimist. You can’t build a business with blinkers on.

What did you want to be as a child?

Journalist. I guess that’s why I still enjoy writing.

What will be the greatest challenge facing the secured loan industry in the coming months?

Helping brokers and colleagues alike through the infancy of FCA regulation.

Who or what makes you laugh?

The people around me at work, at home and at my hobby. Without which I’d be as miserable as hell to do business with.

Do you dread Monday mornings?

No as I’m surrounded by a great group of people that I get on with which makes each morning easier.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

My impatience.  Maybe I was a secured loan broker in a former life.

With whom would you most like to have dinner?

Aside from my wife it would have to be Stephen Fry. A very intelligent man with a wicked and dry sense of humour.
