Hometrack signs services deal with Santander

Hometrack Data Systems has signed a deal with Santander to provide valuation and risk information.

The contract will provide the Santander Group with extensive UK services across the risk, treasury and marketing areas of the bank. This will include the provision of objective residential valuations as well as the use of Hometrack’s proprietary product Failsafe for all new lending.

Santander UK chief credit officer Iain Laing says: “Santander UK has enjoyed considerable benefits from its relationship with Hometrack and with this new licence will be able to take advantage of future opportunities for even more rigorous management of risk, capital allocation, processing economies and detection of attempted fraud.”

Hometrack chief operating officer David Catt says: “Hometrack has been working closely with Abbey for the last three years, helping them improve valuation efficiencies both in time and cost. 

“In February Hometrack revalued the Santander Group’s entire UK residential mortgage portfolio. A licence agreement tailored to Abbey’s needs was a logical move.”
