The Midlands based firm won the category despite high level departures through the year showing advisers still have confidence in BM Solutions despite the major staff shake-up.
2005 saw an impressive campaign from BM Solutions to name and shame lenders as a way of protecting brokers from possible future client complaints which managed to stir up resentment from rivals but was seen as BM sticking up for advisers and highlighting important concerns.
The firm now has over 28bn mortgage assets after a busy year for the team in terms of new product launches.
May saw the launch of a new sub-prime range and extra-light and near-prime categories which BM claimed would grow business share by 20 per cent and again showed the firms innovative approach to this area of lending.
Other products launched through the year included a limited edition buy-to-let tracker, self-cert fixed rate product and mainstream flexible mortgage while the firm continued to impress brokers with its KFI generation system.
The firm also launched its online application process for additional borrowing as part of its One Minute Mortgage application service in a busy year of development.
BM Solutions were worthy winners of Best Specialist Lender Award in after being seen to stick up for broker interests, growing the business significantly and launching an impressive suite of new products.
