One of the UK’s leading independent mortgage and general insurance networks, HLPartnership (HLP) has selected Crystal Specialist Finance (CSF) as preferred specialist distributor partner for the commercial and bridging markets.
HLP, which was founded in 2001 and has over 400 Partner Advisers nationwide, selected CSF based on the company’s excellent service levels and application conversion rate with the decision giving its members access to expert advice and over 70 lenders, including exclusive product lines.
In addition, the award-winning companies’ marketing and new business development functions will work closely to inform the network of the latest news and products, as well as identify market opportunities and potential growth areas.
CSF, which operates across five core specialist divisions, also functions in the development funding, second charge loans and specialist mortgages sectors.
Chris Tanner, CEO of HLPartnership comments: “With the changes we are seeing across the market, especially from a regulatory perspective, it’s important that we continue to offer our Partner Advisers the right support and expertise when they need it for customers who need commercial finance and bridging.
“By adding CSF to our panel we will be providing more help and assistance in what is a specialist area of the lending market.”
“There is no doubt that the market has seen significant shifts over the course of the year,” adds Jo Breeden, managing director of CSF, “but the fact remains that we are still able to place the large majority of cases we receive with respected lenders at excellent rates.
“Many believe that a case that has been declined or is perceived as quite specialist is a lost cause, but nothing could be further from the truth and we have a track record which continues to speak for itself. We look forward immensely to partnering with HLP and their Partner Advisers to make a positive difference.”
