SimplyBiz Mortgages appoints Crystal Specialist Finance to new ancillary panel

Monday 23 Jan 2017

Tamworth-based Crystal Specialist Finance (CSF) has been appointed to the new ancillary panel of one of the UK’s largest mortgage clubs, SimplyBiz Mortgages.

Following a comprehensive three-month research and tender process, CSF will advise members on applications across its five specialist core divisions: Bridging, Commercial, Development Funding, Second Charge Loans and Specialist Mortgages.

Having grown year-on-year since its inception in 2004, SimplyBiz Mortgages supports over 3,400 mortgage intermediaries across the UK, giving easy access to compliance and technical support as well as a wide variety of products all designed to further develop their business potential.

The review was undertaken following the large number of legislative changes in the financial industry last year, including the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) and Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), to ensure the best levels of advice and compliance from partners for its members.

Martin Reynolds, CEO of SimplyBiz Mortgages, commented: “Following a three-month due diligence process we have created a new panel that will offer members both choice and access to a wealth of knowledge, and Crystal Specialist Finance has proved it can deliver on all fronts.

“Commercial mortgages, and the specialist finance market as a whole, are becoming more complex and using all the resources available to you as an adviser is essential. CSF will be an excellent addition to our ancillary panel and will readily assist our members in securing more business.”

Jo Breeden, Managing Director of CSF, added: “SimplyBiz Mortgages easily stands as one of the leading mortgage clubs in the UK, with their commitment to service and compliance always driving the business direction.

“To be selected after a very thorough tender process shows that CSF is operating on a comparable level, and we will also continually drive to improve so the service we deliver, both on the phone and online, is second-to-none.”
