TBMC joins two networks’ panels

The Business Mortgage Company, has joined the panels of Friends Orion and Park Row Associates as a pack-ager for buy-to-let mortgages and commercial loans.

Andy Young, managing director of TBMC, says it is part of the firm’s strategy to establish relationships with networks and IFAs.

He says: “Buy-to-let and commercial mortgages present great opportunities for intermediaries and TBMC will be able to give them the support they need to operate in these markets.”

Trevor Galvin, mortgage proposition manager at Friends Orion, says: “The buy-to-let sector is increasingly important to us as more of our advisers are recognising the opportunity it represents. TBMC has a fine reputation in the sector and will provide our advisers with access to good products and expert support.”

Young adds: “Feedback from the Mortgage Expo and observations in the marketplace show a growing interest in commercial loans as a potentially lucrative business opportunity for brokers.”

Kevin Paterson, managing director of Park Row Associates, says: “As it is an expert in the field, working with TBMC will allow our appointed representatives to take advantage of the opportunities in these specialist markets.”
