Buster Tolfree, Commercial Director – Mortgages, United Trust Bank said: “This is a significant milestone for the Bank and it’s hard to believe that we soft launched into the second charge market just four years ago. Since then we have continued to shake up the specialist mortgage sector, won lots of awards and developed an entire division off the back of our second charge success. I would like to thank Fluent Money and all the other brokers and packagers who have supported UTB and helped us to reach this impressive milestone so quickly.

“We recently completed our very first home purchase mortgage and are continuing to develop our offering with an ambition to become a significant participant in the wider specialist mortgage market. I’m confident it won’t be long before we announce our 10,000th first charge mortgage… so watch this space!”
