Members of the Connect for Intermediaries network will now be offered free membership of new trade body the Financial Intermediary and Broker Association.
This trade body launched in January this year.
Fiba members receive preferential terms for professional indemnity and business insurance, regulatory support services, PR assistance as well as a corporate and personal credit check facility.
It also provides access to a range of specialist lenders.
Connect for Intermediaries says it hopes this membership bolsters existing benefits provided by the network. These include exclusive rates from a panel of more than 100 lenders, as well as specialist support for more complex buy-to-let, commercial, bridging and ex-pat mortgages.
Network members also get free membership of bespoke versions of Knowledge Bank and Twenty7tec.
Connect for Intermediaries chief executive Liz Syms says: “We believe this package of measures puts our brokers in prime position to achieve the very best outcomes for their clients, and ensure that they have profitable, growing businesses.”
FIBA executive chairman Adam Tyler says he welcomes the network’s authorised representatives into FIBA.
