My passion is specialist finance, which includes commercial lending. With over 9 years Insolvency and Finance experience, it gives me great pleasure to be able to assist brokers to achieve a financial solution when the banks say no. The opportunity to work with Yasmine and the WCFF team means I have wider scope to assist more of these clients.

WCFF is an opportunity to celebrate the lady powerhouses in our industry. I’m thrilled to collaborate with the Partners and Brokers of the forum and share the ORDE difference. We are all so unique in what we can deliver in the Commercial market, which makes this forum extremely valuable and insightful for all. I look forward to uniting, educating, and learning as part of this Partnership.
