Complete service for brokers

Complete Mortgage and Loan Services is set to kick off its Complete Network by offering brokers free miniworkshops on compliance at its stand at Mortgage Expo 2003 next week.

The Complete Network is offering a proposition for introducers, appointed representatives and directly authorised firms promising that none of its network colleagues will be tied in for lengthy periods. Complete Network says members will benefit from exclusive products, access to mortgage clubs and niche lenders, whole of market life and general insurance products, IT support and competitive PII cover.

Compliance Network&#39s compliance support is run by former MCCB national compliance manager Bill Warren, now CMLS&#39 network director, who will also be running the workshops.

He says: “We are entering a crucial period for intermediary businesses where they must now analyse their individual businesses and see what options will be best for them. A comprehensive network such as Complete will provide the information, support and flexibility being sought by many firms at this time.”

Compliance Network is one of several networks planning to launch at next week&#39s Mortgage Business Expo. Up to 4,000 intermediaries are expected to attend the event, to be held at London&#39s Earls Court Two conference centre on November 18 and 19.
