Brightstar turnover rises 44% in 2015


Brightstar’s turnover rose by 44 per cent in 2015 to £5.3m.

The firm says its profit rose by 40 per cent in the same period and that it had passed the £1bn lending mark in November.

Last year Brightstar launched a development finance division and a regulated mortgage arm, Bright Mortgage Services.

Brightstar chief executive Rob Jupp says: “We are not slowing down our growth plans however, this year we will be expanding our offices, entering new locations and slightly different markets and we aim to grow by at least 50 per cent.

“We will also have the launch of our long awaited new sourcing and technology system in which we have invested heavily but which will have a very positive impact on the brokers who work with Brightstar.”

Brightstar got full credit mortgage permissions in October.
