Connect for Intermediaries is to provide all of its network members with membership of trade body FIBA as part of the benefits they receive as an appointed representative of Connect.

The Financial Intermediary and Broker Association (FIBA) launched in January of this year with the aim to support brokers and help them to grow their businesses.

Liz Syms, chief executive for Connect for Intermediaries, said: “Our AR brokers are at the heart of everything that we do. We prioritise achieving the very best outcomes for both our brokers and their clients and do so in an ethical and transparent manner.

“We believe this package of measures, together with the complementary membership of FIBA puts our brokers in prime position to also achieve the very best outcomes for their clients and to ensure that they have profitable, growing businesses.”

Benefits of membership include the ability to network with all who operate in the specialist finance industry and preferential terms for professional indemnity insurance and business insurance.

There is a regulatory support service, marketing and PR support services and a corporate and personal credit check facility amongst others. It also provides access to a broad range of specialist lenders.

This membership will complement the range of benefits that Connect for Intermediaries already provides to its ARs including access to a panel of over 100 lenders and exclusive rates and products.

Adam Tyler, executive chairman of FIBA said: “Connect for Intermediaries is a forward-thinking network and it is clear to see how it is achieving such rapid growth.

“It is refreshing to see a network that so clearly prioritises the success of its AR members and we welcome each of them to FIBA.

“As a trade body that looks after both intermediaries and brokers working in the specialist finance industry, we are dedicated to helping and supporting our members.

“We are providing a traditional service in a way that will clearly benefit not only Connect’s ARs but also all of our other member firms.”
