NGM and SPML team up for football weekend

Next Generation Mortgages and SPML has teamed up to offer specialist mortgage intermediaries the chance to win a dream weekend in Italy attending the Milan derby between AC and Inter next season.

The &#39all expenses paid&#39 trip includes a ticket to attend one of European football&#39s leading games at the world famous San Siro stadium, flights, hotels and meals &#45 and it&#39s open to all specialist advisers, regardless of whether they are existing partners of NGM or not.

Winning a ticket couldn&#39t be easier. All an intermediary has to do is call NGM&#39s sales support team on 0870 042 5550 and register for the competition by quoting reference SPML/inter/001.

They must then complete just six SPML mortgage, remortgage and secured loan cases (across the lender&#39s entire product portfolio) every calendar month in July, August, September and October 2004.

Those intermediaries who meet the criteria will automatically qualify for the all expenses paid trip.

NGM director Sian Markham says: “We&#39re always looking at ways to reward our intermediaries and, as we&#39re entering a period that is going to be dominated with talk of the beautiful game, we thought a trip to watch two of the greatest teams in Europe would prove to be an attractive proposition.”

John Prust, sales and marketing director of SPML, says: “We have a strong working relationship with NGM and its intermediary partners. We are naturally delighted to be able to work together on this incentive scheme.”

The competition kicks-off on June 7 and ends on October 31 2004. Only brokers who have registered with NGM will be eligible to take part.
