Enable forges links with three top mortgage clubs

Enable mortgage and insurance network, part of Skipton Group, has agreed terms with three of the leading UK mortgage clubs – Legal & General, Premier Mortgage Services and Abbey&#39s The Mortgage Alliance.

The agreements are designed to build on Enable&#39s commitment to deliver access to the whole market for its appointed representatives following regulation.

Richard Verdin, sales and marketing director at Enable, says: “All three have reputations for innovation, with each having proven their value to intermediaries in recent years. We don&#39t just want our members to have access to the whole market, we want them to have access to the best routes to lenders and therefore we are pleased that L&G, PMS and The Mortgage Alliance have all agreed to work with us.”

John Cupis, sales and marketing director at L&G&#39s mortgage club says: “L&G&#39s close working relationship with Enable on protection products and now mortgages, including exclusives through the mortgage club, will give Enable ARs a great product package in the housing market.”

John Malone of Premier Mortgage Services says: “I have known the team at Enable for quite a while and I believe its proposition will be attractive to prospective appointed representatives.”

And Kevin Twomey, key relationship manager at Abbey for Intermediaries, says: “We are pleased to support Enable&#39s approach to the mortgage market through The Mortgage Alliance as well as through Abbey&#39s mortgage range and Scottish Provident&#39s protection products.”
