Connect expands into new premises
Still based in Hornchurch, the Connect Group is right on track in its expansion plans with the services it provides for brokers, according to managing director, Liz Syms.
She said: “The move has gone exceptionally well but it is a relief to have everyone settled and all the systems working without a hitch.
“With the growth in our core business sectors, particularly the Connect Mortgage Club and Connect Overseas Pro service, we really needed a much larger meeting room to accommodate the growing number of brokers attending our member training days.”
She added: “The Mortgage Club has really caught the imagination of many intermediaries involved principally in unregulated finance business, such as BTL, as it offers brokers AR status and their own FCA number as well as access to a wide panel of lenders and other services.
“Connect Overseas Pro is riding the growing wave of interest from brokers looking to build a new business stream and we have fielded more broker enquiries in the first five months of this year than in whole of 2012.
“Since the launch of the two offerings the Connect Group have signed up 53 members as Appointed Representatives of the buy to let mortgage club and international mortgage service.
“Alongside the office move we have also taken this opportunity to refresh our branding to better align and reflect the services offered within the Connect Group.”
