Cheval reports Expo success

Cheval, the Stanmore based bridging finance lender, reports great interest from brokers in its website and rebranding, which were unveiled at the Mortgage Business Expo last week.

Cheval, which has rebranded with an underlying message stress free bridging, has redesigned its website in response to market research among brokers. The site now features easy to use registration, online DIP requests and KFI production and a call me back feature allowing brokers to schedule a call back at a specific time.

Along with a FAQ section, specific intermediary case studies and a forms library, the website is designed to offer brokers everything they will need to do business.

Paul Rumbold, sales and operations director at Cheval says: “I was never in any doubt, but the Expo confirmed brokers have a large appetite for finding out more about bridging finance, and how it can help their clients. Of particular interest were the features on our website, which are designed to help brokers to do business with us.

“On a lighter note, as part of promoting stress free bridging finance with Cheval, we were giving away personal massagers and thought we had run out. In fact we discovered after the Expo that we had a couple of spare boxes. If anyone wants the ultimate in relaxation aids, they can contact us via our website, and we will be happy to send one to them.”
