M2000 to become Brilliant Mortgages

Exclusive Connections acquired the M2000 mortgage club in February, and has revealed that it will be renamed as Brilliant Mortgages from May 1 to make the club more closely aligned with its Brilliant Loans arm.

Exclusive Connections managing director Matthew Arena says: ”We are delighted to announce the change of name for the mortgage club to Brilliant Mortgages, as it better encapsulates the integration of our existing lending panel arrangements along with the relationships that already existed under the old club.

While it is unfortunate to see news of so many packagers and networks closing, intermediaries can be sure that Exclusive Connections and its Brilliant Mortgages and Brilliant Loans subsidiaries will be a stable presence during these uncertain times.”
