Misys IFA Services is setting up an interactive website as part of its
Mortgage Connections loan service for its member networks.
The site, accessible to members of Countrywide, Financial Options, Kestrel
and IFA Network, will provide full contact details for over 25 leading
lenders and a direct link to Misys' top 10 “premier lenders,” which
includes Abbey Nat-ional, Halifax, Nationwide and Woolwich.
The website offers a product search facility which lets members match a
len-der to a specific type of loan and mortgage-related training for
Misys IFA network members. The site, www.mi-connections.co.UK, also aims to
provide members with details of any special or exclusive offers available
Mortgage Connections consultant Rachel Hennessy says: “Members of all our
networks are able to capitalise on the increasing mortgage market through
this website, helping them to proactively expand their mortgage business
conducted with new and existing clients.”
Misys IFA Services has also appointed Ian Costain as head of research. His
remit will include improving Misys' networks recommended product panels and
Costain, a qualified actuary, was formerly with NatWest Life and Royal
Bank of Scotland, where he led their stakeholder pension launches.
