NatGuarantee in loyalty scheme for introducers

Mortgage packager National Guarantee is bidding to increase the size of its intermediary distribution channel.

The Birmingham-based firm has launched a preferred intermediary scheme with the aim of building loyalty and business relationships with key mortgage introducers by offering a range of support services.

Services include access to tailored courses to help intermediaries gain necessary mortgage qualifications, lead generation specific to the area in which the intermediary operates and a compliance support team catering for forthcoming regulatory requirements.

It also has specialist underwriting teams able to offer immediate decisions in principle and will provide IT support for intermediaries seven days a week.

Managing director Keith Robinson says: “We have been looking at doing something like this for quite a while. We have spent time looking at the proposition we are making to the intermediary community and we are confident it will be attractive to those brokers and IFAs that we want to develop relationships with.

“We are particularly looking to work with companies and individuals who have strong track records in the non-conforming sector and already understand the needs and complexities of this rapidly evolving and dynamic market.”
