Mark Bullard, Head of Sales, commented: “Having reviewed our portfolio, I’m delighted that we are able to make some significant rate reductions on many of our mortgages. This is particularly evident in our shared equity and five year products as we believe there is a great opportunity to grow these sectors of the market.
We have had a great start to the year. Our recent announcement about our new BDM partnership model has been very well received by the broker community who will now have a field and a phone BDM supporting them. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead, delivering a continued excellent level of service to mortgage advisers.”
