Mortgage Introducer

March 19, 2019

The Scottish Mortgage Awards sponsored by Barclays was an industry first, celebrating the finest of Scotland’s mortgage world. Check out the picture gallery here.

Hosted by BBC Radio Scotland’s Fred MacAulay, the awards took place at the wonderful Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh on Thursday 7 March 2019 and were well-received.

There were 17 award winners, with Douglas Cochrane, Lloyds Banking Group, winning The Lifetime Achievement Award.

Meanwhile Nationwide Intermediary Solutions scooped Lender of The Year, Carrington took home Overall Broker of the Year and Aldermore won Specialist Lender of The Year.

Mortgage Advice Bureau took home three awards: MAB New Homes won Regional Best Broker – Glasgow, MAB Network Partner Scotland won Regional Best Broker – Edinburgh, while MAB in Dundee won Regional Best Broker – Dundee & East Fife.

Robyn Hall, publishing editor of Mortgage Introducer, said: “These awards were the first of their kind in Scotland, which has a smaller mortgage market but should never be ignored.

“We all celebrated it in style, showcasing and highlighting the important work many brokers, lenders, distributors, surveyors and general insurance providers do in Scotland.

“We’ve received nothing but great feedback and look forward to seeing you all next year for another brilliant night, celebrating the excellence the Scottish mortgage market has to offer.”
