PTFS intermediaries can choose the channel to Rooftop Mortgages that best suits their individual requirements: Members can submit through PTFS’s new packaging arm, PT Packaging Ltd, or place unpackaged business with Rooftop Direct.

Rooftop sales and marketing director Alison Beech said of the move: “We hope that this move evidences our commitment to addressing the needs of the networks and their ARs, by evolving our business accordingly.

“We recognise the desire of some brokers to access the lender directly and believe we should accommodate them. At the same time, however, we will continue to help our packaging partners to build their business. There is no “one-size-fits-all” mentality at Rooftop, we don’t dictate how brokers should work with us. Instead, we welcome business equally from all our channels.”

Rob Jupp, Managing Director at PT Packaging Ltd, adds: “We demand stringent standards when we appoint new lenders to our panel. Rooftop has impressed us with its ‘can-do’ attitude to lending. We are looking forward to working with them on their excellent product range as well as a number of exciting niche opportunities.”

PTFS’s Managing Director, Mike Allison, says: “We are delighted that we are broadening our proposition to our AR and DA members even further. We are committed to adding more products and services to our members via all distribution channels, especially where those products are as innovative and competitive as those provided by Rooftop.”
