Second charge distributor Fluent Money Group has bought Manchester based broker and packager Brytannic Extra Finance.

Brytannic will move its 18-strong team into Fluent Money’s head office in Horwich, near Bolton.

Brytannic will be rebranded as Fluent Mortgages Limted and will offer specialist services to bolster Fluent’s existing second charge proposition.

Fluent Money Group chief executive Kevin Hindley says: “We have known Dan Payne and his team for some time and have always been impressed with the way they do business.

“They share the same philosophy on customer care as we do and therefore when we were looking to expand the Group’s activities, it was a logical choice to talk to Brytannic.”

Brytannic managing director Dan Payne says: “We are all delighted to be joining the Fluent family and becoming part of this highly successful brand.”
