MONDAY EMBARGO!!!!!Platform launches fixed rate range

Platform, the intermediary lender of Britannia, today announces the launch of a range of fixed rates across its self-cert, buy-to-let and sub-prime products.

The range also sees the launch of a two-year fixed rate self-cert special available to 85% LTV at the exceptional rate of 4.95% with no early repayment charge overhang.

These fixed rates have been launched to follow on from the success of the previous range launched in July with clickdecision. The combination of competitive products and a best of breed online decision facility, has seen Platform double its new business volumes and receive over 40,000 decisions online of which over 80% have been approved.

Guy Batchelor, sales and marketing director, says: The launch of clickdecision and our previous product range has been a significant development for Platform and has completely revolutionised our business. While we expected an increase in our numbers, we have far exceeded even our expectations.

Our challenge is to maintain our position as one of the top specialist lenders and this new range of fixed rates will ensure we do so in the buy-to-let, self-cert and sub-prime markets. With the launch of electronic ID verification on clickdecision last week, once again Platform not only has one of the foremost online decision systems in the market, we also have one of the most competitive product ranges as well.
