Saffron Building Society bolsters risk team

Saffron Building Society has made a number of appointments to its risk team as part of its service and delivery strategy.

Following a successful 2021 for the Society, strengthened with new criteria updates, mortgage products and an enhanced commitment to specialist applicants, including the self-employed and contractors, Saffron has continued to invest in people, with the risk team being the latest to benefit from an update.

Clive Moore has joined the Society as chief risk officer, beginning in role on January 3rd, 2022. Clive is no stranger at Saffron, having worked as chief risk officer between 2015 and 2019.

Moore said: “It is an absolute pleasure to return to Saffron Building Society. In the few years that I have been gone, the Society has been making huge strides in its offering, from the quality and availability of mortgage products to improving service and a more customer-centric operation.

“I am delighted to get my feet back under the table and be on board as improvements continue at pace in the months and years to come.”

He is supported by new deputy chief risk officer (DCRO), Saffron risk veteran Natalie Duncan.

Duncan has been working in the risk team for nine years, starting as risk support officer, where she has gained invaluable experience in operational risk and resilience.

She said: “Being deputy CRO is an interesting job where you get to uncover and analyse every process and control across all areas of the business. I have learnt and gained an excellent understanding of processes.

“My new responsibilities are to support the CRO in the effective and robust management of risk & compliance throughout the Society, including adaptations and amendments to lending criteria and policy, which will further bolster our broker proposition throughout 2022 and beyond.”
