Propositions director Jon Everill says the firm will make a decision later this year and one of the outcomes could be to abandon its multi-tie model but he insists it has no definite plans. This comes as the group was fined £900,000 last week for sub-prime mortgage record-keeping failings.
Everill says Thinc is not worried about the RDR but says he expects that all multi-tied networks will review their model.
He says: “I would hope that everyone would look at their model as a matter of course. We do regular reviews of how we operate to make sure it is right commercially for us.
“We are reviewing our strategy based on what is going on in the market. We are in a period of discussion and analysis. We are not prepared to say what the outcome will be as nothing is concrete. We would like to be in a position later this year to make an announcement.”
