Coventry Building Society boosted its gross mortgage lending by 14% to £4bn in 2011.
This compares with lending of £3.5bn in 2010 and equates to a 17% market share of all mutual lending.
The society’s net lending was £1.7bn for 2011, up slightly from £1.6bn in 2010. Its underlying profit before tax was £84.6m, 12% higher than the previous year’s profit of £75.3m.
David Stewart, chief executive of Coventry, says: “We could not have achieved this without the support of the intermediary sector.”
The results also reveal that Coventry’s retail savings balances grew by 8%, from £17.6bn in 2010 to £19bn in 2011.
