Pink Home Loans has extended the end date on its secured loans commission enhancement campaign until the end of August.

This means that intermediaries will receive a 10% enhancement on their commission payments.

The campaign is open to appointed representative’s and registered directly authorised intermediaries of Pink.

Pink works in partnership with Colonial Secured Loans, who is a specialist master broker and offer secured loans of between £7,500 up to £250,000.

Phil Whitehouse, business opportunities manager at Pink, says: “Following the initial success of the campaign, the decision has been made to extend the end date until the end of August 2007 so that even more intermediaries can take advantage of this offer.”

He adds: “Secured loans are great way for intermediaries to boost their income whilst considering a product that can be a real alternative to a remortgage or further advance for some customers depending on their circumstances.

“The process involved in obtaining quotes and submitting business to Colonial is simple, quick and easy and the commission levels are very competitive”.
