Bank of Ireland continues to grow broker distribution

Bank of Ireland UK has added Pink to its panel as it continues to expand its intermediary distribution.

The announcement come three weeks after the lender added Sesame to its panel.

BoI 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. It then opened up to First Complete, Openwork and Intrinsic this year. It continues to fund the Post Office’s mortgages.

BoI director of sales for UK mortgages Alison Pallett says: “Pink has recognised what our business can offer their network and we are pleased to be added to the panel of a top performing network of mortgage advisers which has been recognised in so many industry awards over the past decade.”

Pink mortgage manager Karen Hedges says: “We are very pleased to begin this relationship with Bank of Ireland UK. The members of our network are always demanding access to the best products and service, and this development will mean that we can continue to prove we provide that.”
