Bank of Ireland begins distributing through Intrinsic

Bank of Ireland has expanded its panel and now distributes it mortgages through Intrinsic Financial Services.

The lender re-entered the broker market under its own brand in December, first distributing through LSL estate agency subsidiaries Reeds Rains, Your Move and Embrace Mortgage Services, before opening up to First Complete ARs last month.

In April it began distributing through Openwork. Before that it only provided funding for Post Office mortgages.

BoI director of sales Alison Pallett says: “There is great excitement surrounding this partnership. This roll out is the next phase, which sees our distribution widening.
