Read on to learn more about Tej including his hopes and aspirations for the coming year in his new role.

What are you most looking forward to in your role as Commercial Finance Manager?

Working with clients and helping them grow their businesses. The best part is knowing when you’ve made a tangible difference to a client’s business by bringing creative solutions to the table which they may not have found elsewhere.

What do you think will be the biggest challenges to lending in 2022?

It is highly likely that interest rates will rise in 2022, and perhaps more than once. We can expect loans and mortgages to cost more and this may deter business activity among borrowers. Businesses may find themselves struggling to navigate finance given potential changes to interest rates, which is where the role of a broker will be key.

What are your passions outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, trying out new restaurants and going to the Emirates to watch Arsenal (which can occasionally provide more trauma than passion)

What resolutions have you made for 2022?

On a personal note – to finish the books that have been sitting on my bedside table for far too long and to try and not catch Covid, again.

 Professionally, to ensure that each deal is completed in a timely and efficient manner and exceeds the expectations of each and every client!
