“The mortgage market has changed significantly in recent months, and will continue to be impacted by the current high inflationary environment,” Davies said. “As a result, the market will need more specialist lenders to support the growing cohort of customers who struggle to meet the vanilla criteria of high street banks.

“I look forward to working with the Bluestone team to help more customers across the country step on to or up the property ladder and cement Bluestone’s position as the specialist lender of choice.”

Steve Seal, chief executive at Bluestone Mortgages, commented that Davies’s appointment was testament to the lender’s ongoing commitment to better support brokers and their customers to achieve their homeownership goals.

“Ryan will play a pivotal role in expanding our offering and strengthening our position in the market, and we’re delighted to have him on the team.”
