Edeus launches four-way exclusive product launch

edeus has launched four shared exclusive products to packager partners BDS Mortgage Group, Chase UK, Solent Mortgage Services and Mortgagematch Homeloans.

The product is aimed at the medium adverse range.

edeus director of national accounts Peter Charge says: “We believe in the packager market and choose our business partners carefully starting with these associations, who we feel we can grow our business with and have the same long term goals.  The products we are giving them today are just the start of a full range to be launched in January.”

Chase UK sales director Jon Turnbull says: “We have been dealing with edeus since the start and have done phenomenal levels of business with them.  The addition of some packager only products demonstrates edeus’ level of commitment to our market.  We have had a glimpse at their thoughts for next year and they are certainly working to the right plan for the packager market.’’

Paul Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of Solent Mortgage Services commented: “It is good to note that edeus is committed to the packager channel as a vital part of their distribution model.”

Mortgagematch Homeloans director Amo Rupra says: “We are delighted to offer an exclusive product with edeus.  Since their launch edeus have made a significant positive impact on our business, we have enjoyed working with them and look forward to continued support in 2007.”

Case Consulting spokesman Terry Pritchard says: “Given the previous reputation about a negative feeling towards packagers I have been astounded by the level of help and support provided by edeus’ management team to date, and I am confident that the plans for 2007 will have many other lenders looking at themselves closely.  This small taster as an exclusive to our packager partners is just a start of our development which will continue indefinitely.”
