Metro Bank chairman Anthony Thomson says the bank does not rule out distributing mortgage products through mortgage brokers.
Taking part in a panel discussion in London today, Thomson said people should be free to use the distribution channel they prefer.
He said: “We don’t use them. We’re a tiny bank. But it comes back to my point that, I think that everybody should have to opportunity to use the channel they prefer. So if somebody wants to go to an intermediary to buy a mortgage, that is absolutely fine.
When asked if Metro Bank would consider using mortgage brokers to distribute its mortgage products, Thomson replied: “I would not rule it out”.
