Freedom Finance changes name of mortgage arm

Freedom Finance is changing the name of its mortgage lending business to Freedom Lending to avoid confusion among mortgage intermediaries.

Freedom Lending managing director Colin Snowdon says: “We will continue to use the Freedom prefix, along with the foot logo, which will ensure brand continuity. In fact, the only changes are the addition of the word lending and a different colour scheme.”
