CHL Mortgages links to Trigold

Specialist lender CHL Mortgages has agreed to integrate with Trigold into its e-trading centre to receive applications from its Prospector AAA sourcing system.

CHL says it expects to benefit from the direct process through the pre-population technology speeding up the turnaround time of the application and removing opportunity for user error with client details.

CHL Mortgages head of sales and marketing Trevor Child says: “Our decision to integrate with Trigold was partly due to their extraordinary growth with over 70 per cent of brokers now relying on the system but also the flexibility of their team to complete the technical integration.”

Trigold sales director David Thompson says: “CHL has been innovative in creating a range of specialist products and today’s busy intermediary needs to be able to access these products in a quick and cost-effective manner.

“ETC is available free to all intermediaries and is now the most widely supported mortgage trading platform. Direct access to lenders like CHL with their market-leading products direct from the desktop without any re-keying of information is a terrific development for advisors.”
