The revamped website will include an affordability calculator, which will enable brokers to get a decision on how much C&G will lend their client without leaving a footprint on their credit record.

C&G has also added a news alert service to keep intermediaries abreast of any new offers from the lender and a salesforce locator, which will hook brokers up with a local intermediary sales manager. The products page has also had a facelift in a bid to make it quicker and simpler to use. The site can be found at www.cheltgos-intermediaries.co.ukIntermediary sales director John Champion says: “Intermediaries play a key part in our success and our website has been designed to save intermediaries and their clients’ time. The site presents valuable information in a format that is easy to navigate on a daily basis.”
