According to the event organisers, publications Mortgage Introducer and Specialist Finance Introducer, the awards… “recognise, reward and celebrate the best and brightest of the UK Specialist Finance sector; individuals and businesses who are pushing boundaries, breaking down barriers and resetting the dial with innovation and professionalism.”
Buster Tolfree – Director – Mortgages, commented: “Winning this award means a lot, especially as brokers play such a vital role in the secured loan industry. We invested in technology, people and new products and processes to ensure we could continue to lend and at times we were servicing around half of the second charge market. I’m extremely proud of my team, for their dedication to deliver the best broker and customer outcomes and their perseverance in the face of considerable challenges. They thoroughly deserve this award.”
