In the Spotlight with Danielle Lawrence of Pink Pig Loans

We sat down with Danielle Lawrence of Pink Pig Loans, to find out why there is a bell in the Pink Pig office, how she juggles working and family life and what she thinks is in store for 2012...

 1) Firstly, for those who don’t know, could you tell me a little bit about Pink Pig Loans?

We specialise in secured lending.  Short term and Long term financing via 1st and 2nd charges.  Pink Pig Loans is a small family run business with over 12 years experience in the financial sector. We have a great team here at Pink Pig and pride ourselves in the quality and speed of our service.

2) What does your role in the company involve?

I have recently taken on a more senior underwriting role which I am really enjoying! And, when I haven’t got my head in a file, I also deal with generating new business for the company.

3) Could you tell us a bit about your background and what made you get into the secured lending industry?

Well it was actually a bit of a surprise to me. I was previously studying law in college (but that wasn’t paying the bills) and a friend of mine mentioned that there was a position available in Pink Pig Loans.  Mr Rainbird obviously saw my potential, the position was offered to me and I have never looked back since.

4) In light of the ongoing financial crisis, what do you think has been the biggest challenge the industry has faced over the past few years?

Well, where to start? Recession, drop in house prices, lack of lenders …..

5) What is the best thing about your job?

The sound of the completion bell ringing! (we actually have a bell in the office)  Knowing you have found that financial solution for both client and broker.  A lot of hard work, effort and time goes into a case these days and it is very rewarding to get that case over the line.

6) If you weren’t working in financial services, what do you think you would be doing instead?

I can’t imagine that even being an option anymore. I truly think that I will remain in the financial sector for the rest of my working life (If not, I don’t know, maybe join the circus haha).

7) You have recently just added borro’s asset loan products to your existing secured and bridging loan portfolio, could you explain a little more about this?

Yes, exiting times! Pink Pig Loans does not take lightly to adding new products to its portfolio but we believe that this is a valuable product to have and it is already generating some interest since its launch!

8) What other significant changes do you think will come into play in the secured lending industry in 2012?

If only I had a Crystal Ball…. We are remaining positive for 2012.

9) What do you like to do in your weekends off?

Being a full-time working mother I would like to say I go home and rest all weekend, however that is not the case.  I spend my weekends having fun with the hubby and my 3 beautiful girls. We like to go away as much as we can on the weekends. The girls love a good trip to Butlins!

10) And, finally, bearing in mind you are from Cardiff, I have to ask – Football or Rugby?

I quite like them both! But I have to say rugby has got to be my favourite! I love going to watch a good match in the stadium! The atmosphere is fab!  So much better than at a football match!
