LIME members and clients will have access to a packaging service from Exclusive Connections, which it says is the largest mortgage packager in the market. The service will be available via six Exclusive Connections local offices and will provide members with access to a packaged panel of 17 lenders and an inclusive range of products with competitive procuration fees.
