Direct Financial Services the Yorkshire based mortgage and secured loan distributor has added Link Loans to its lender panel.

John Maclean, managing director of Link Lending, says: “We are delighted to be still offering competitive secured loans in what continues to be a difficult market, and to now offer brokers access to Link Loans via Direct Financial Services.

“We believe that Direct Financial Services has a commitment to good value and high quality service standards that is consistent with our own values, and we are pleased to make our products available through this wider distribution channel.”

Alex Knaggs, managing director of Direct Financial Services, says: “This is excellent news for us to form a new partnership with a lender of the calibre of Link Lending. At a time when funding is difficult, this new relationship will add additional opportunities for our introducers looking for a high LTV option. This addition also reinforces our long term commitment to the secured loan market.”
