Complete FS adds West One Loans to secured loan panel

Complete FS has announced the addition of West One Loans to its secured loans panel.

The specialist lending packager cites an 86 per cent increase in West One’s secured loan business in 2017 as a prime motivator for the decision.

The addition brings the number of lenders in the panel to ten, with the other lenders comprising: CentralTrust, Equifinance, Masthaven, Prestige Finance, Shawbrook Bank, Step One Finance, Together, United Trust Bank and Vida Homeloans.

Complete FS director Damian Cain comments: “They [West One Loans] have a great range of products with flexible criteria and competitive rates. Marie Grundy and her team have impressed us with their attitude, service and willingness to work with us. They will be a great addition to our panel.

The 86% increase in our secured loans business this year is partly down to increasing interest in suitable alternatives to remortgaging, but also our unique pricing structure where we offer brokers the option of ‘Fees Paid’ or ‘Fees Added’, with both proving very competitive in the secured loan market.”

West One Loans sales director Marie Grundy adds: “I have known Complete’s directors, Damian, Tony and Phil, for a long time and their business model is impressive and has been hugely popular with introducers. Complete FS has been on the list of potential partners we wanted to cultivate, and I am particularly happy that we are now working together.”
