Hometrack has made two senior appointments to its financial services team.
Piero Bassu has joined the business as director of financial services and capital markets while Andrew Vaughan has been appointed as head of mortgage origination solutions.
Bassu (pictured, left) has spent more than 16 years in the global banking sector, focusing on valuation and mortgage risk, most recently as head of IFRS9 delivery for Macquarie Bank and head of risk, control and regulatory management for Barclays Investment Banking Division in Asia Pacific. Prior to that, he was head of mortgage credit risk for Platform Home Loans.
Vaughan (pictured, right) has over 25 years’ experience within financial services and has held senior roles at Legal & General Surveying Services, Lloyds, TSB, Bradford & Bingley and UK Asset Resolution.
He will be responsible for business development of Hometrack’s core products for the mortgage origination marketplace.
Charlie Bryant, Hometrack’s CEO, said: “The appointment of Piero and Andrew is significant for Hometrack. Following our recent acquisition by ZPG earlier this year, we are now in an even stronger position to expand and enhance our solutions to deliver greater value for our lender partners. Hometrack remains committed to further innovation in collateral valuation and mortgage analytics to help lenders enhance the customer experience while managing risk and seeking out new opportunities.
“Piero and Andrew bring a wealth of real world expertise from the banking and retail lending sectors and are strong additions to the current Hometrack team.”
“This is an exciting time to be joining Hometrack,” said Bassu. “The company has ambitious growth plans and strong momentum. I look forward to leveraging my own experience of the mortgage market and the implications of collateral valuation on business processes, capital and provisioning management to support our clients in my new role.”
Vaughan added: “For many years Hometrack has been a key player in the residential property market. Its insight and understanding of residential property trends and data has been unrivalled.
“I’m hugely excited to be joining the team and look forward to playing my own part in building on that impressive reputation.”
