United Trust Bank’s Rob Irving named ‘Top Underwriter of the Year’

United Trust Bank (UTB) Asset Finance Senior Underwriter, Rob Irving, was named ‘Top Underwriter of the Year’ by Paisley based brokers Commercial & Asset Finance Ltd at their ‘Meet the Funder’ event.

Rob joined UTB in 2022 as the specialist Bank’s first home-based Asset Finance Underwriter, working directly with brokers supporting SMEs based in the North-West, Midlands and Scotland.

UTB has always encouraged brokers to take advantage of having direct access to its underwriters and Rob regularly talks to and meets up with commercial finance brokers to discuss cases and UTB’s asset finance proposition.

Management at Commercial & Asset Finance have been so impressed with the service Rob provides, they decided to give him their top underwriting award.

Blair Michie, Managing Director – Commercial & Asset Finance, said: “Underwriters are the key people in enabling us to get deals done. Being able to develop a close working relationship with these underwriters is massively important but also very rare with most funders.

“Rob has been very supportive to Commercial & Asset and is always just at the end of the phone to talk cases through and get deals done.”
