United Trust Bank (UTB) has won the Secured Loan Lender of the Year category at the 2020 Mortgage Introducer (MI) Awards. It is the fifth award won by UTB’s Mortgages team in 2020 which included an individual award for the Bank’s Commercial Director – Mortgages, Buster Tolfree.
This year’s MI Awards were held online due to Covid-19 restrictions and hosted by Mortgage Introducer’s Robyn Hall from the Royal Suite at the St Pancras Renaissance hotel in London. The awards attracted over 30,000 votes and 144 finalists.
Buster Tolfree, Commercial Director – Mortgages, United Trust Bank, commented: “This has been a challenging year for the mortgage industry and the team at UTB did everything they could to support brokers and their customers throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. By implementing innovative FinTech and applying sheer hard work and determination we enabled brokers to keep placing business when many other lenders were stepping back and closing shop. This win recognises the efforts of the entire team and I couldn’t be more proud of the way they have adapted and battled through this year.”
