Bridging & Commercial (B&C) was the first news website established by Medianett – a trailblazing publisher within the specialist financial services market – in 2008.
Launched during the credit crunch, B&C quickly gained ground as the primary title for brokers who were in need of specialist funding after the mainstream, established banks contracted their lending.
Read and supported by the most influential names in the bridging and commercial sectors, B&C is the go-to publication for breaking news, exclusive interviews, product updates and authoritative features that our loyal broker readership returns to again and again.
The Women in Finance Charter
Medianett fully supports the advancement of gender diversity in our sector and is a signatory of the Women in Finance Charter.
We commit to having equal representation at management level in our own organisation and advocate, by example and through our content, for this to be a vital aim for all financial services businesses.
Our target is to have a workforce which is entirely balanced and have put in place initiatives that will assist in us achieving that goal.
October 2019 Update:
When we signed up to the Charter in October 2018 we had 100% female representation at senior management level. As of October 2019 we have 100% female representation in senior management. We have maintained our Charter target. Our intention to have at least 50% female representation has been met.
Our expectations for the next year extend further than our workforce representation. We have altered our approach to recruitment, news reporting and feature writing, event organisation and participation in wider initiatives that support gender diversity. We work to a strict quota for obtaining female voices as part of our on- and offline content and publications, as well as on panels and roundtables which we organise. In this respect, we are setting ourselves further targets and objectives to ensure that we are putting forward a truly representation face of financial services across as many mediums as possible.
