Scottish brokers have welcomed the dedicated mortgage club, Helix Mortgage Services, that has been launched by the Mortgage Intermediary Alliance Scotland.
Brian Ewing, head of intermediary sales for Intelligent Finance, says: “MIAS has recognised that the needs of Scottish brokers differ from the rest of the UK.”
Steve Pollard, managing director of Moneyquest, says: “Scottish brokers will benefit from discounted funds and kitemark standards.”
AMI policy officer Ben Stafford says: “It's not something that touches on what we do at AMI – we are non-commercial. It is a good thing for Scottish brokers but I don't think it is breaking new ground.”
