Pink opens its loan club to Inter-Alliance

Pink Home Loans and Inter-Alliance have formed a strategic partnership giving the network&#39s members full access to Pink Home Loans mortgage club.

The club has a panel of 42 lenders and offers 24-hour payment of commission, access to a legal services provider, a range of secured and unsecured loans and self-build loans.

Inter-Alliance mortgage development director Stuart Wilson says the deal fits in with the firm&#39s mortgage and general insurance network, launched in February.

Pink Home Loans managing director Tony Jones says the company&#39s mortgage club grew threefold during 2003 and the majority of business is now sent directly to the member. He says the partnership will give Inter-Alliance members full access to the club&#39s range of products and services, including the direct lending panel and Pink&#39s range of branded products.

Wilson says: “Inter-Alliance is already well on the road to having one of the biggest networks in the industry. As a true whole-market proposition, we will continue to build solid working relationships with companies such as Pink which has demonstrated its ability to add real value to advisers and their business plans.”
