Associate Accounts, which is similar to the lender’s already operational key Accounts division, will offer ten mortgage brokers the chance to establish a commercial arrangement with AfI, allowing them to benefit from a dedicated management service.
Abbey for Intermediaries Key Accounts Director Adrian Whittaker says: “The goal of establishing this new division is to strengthen our ties with the broker community and offer more commercial opportunities to those intermediaries who are not associated with a key account and yet have a strong and ongoing relationship with us.
“This is about expanding our level of involvement in the industry and in those brokers who have a mutual interest in working more closely with us. In developing this proposition we hope to engage more closely with companies to ensure we are doing all we can to support their business strategy”.
Abbey has appointed Claire Chick to support the new division as national key accounts manager.
