Castle Trust joins the BSA
Castle Trust said that becoming an associate member confirms it’s support for mutuality within the UK mortgage and housing market and builds on its strong relationships with a number of leading building societies.
Castle Trust chief executive Sean Oldfield said it was the latest in a series of initiatives that would establish the reputation of Castle Trust ahead of its planned launch next year.
Others have included securing Plain English ‘Crystal Marks’ for its marketing literature, gaining accreditation from the Chartered Insurance Institute for its Partnership Mortgage adviser training course, taking up associate membership of the Council of Mortgage Lenders and having the company’s financial strength officially endorsed by actuarial consultants AKG.
Oldfield said: “As a strong supporter of mutuality and homeownership, we feel we have common values with the BSA and its members and are looking forward to building on our relationships.
“Becoming an associate will not only connect us to some of the most important thought leadership in the UK housing industry, it will also give us greater opportunities to share our ideas on the future of housing.”
