Affirmative re-joins ASTL after five-year hiatus


Affirmative Group has re-joined the Association of Short Term Lenders after leaving the trade body five years ago.

Affirmative was a founder member of the ASTL, alongside 18 other firms.

ASTL chief executive Benson Hersch says: “We continue to welcome lenders that are open to helping to progress and promote the positive reputation of bridging finance and it is great to see a founder member returning to the association.”

Affirmative managing director Eugene Esterkin says: “As a founder member and original director of the ASTL, both Affirmative and I am happy to see the progress that the ASTL has continued to make under Benson’s leadership.

“It is clear to see how far the association has come; even the way that it operates has changed. We hope that we can contribute to the good work.”
