Packager poll predicts interest from brokers

Nearly three-quarters of packagers believe brokers will show more interest in them this year, research from The Mortgage Business reveals.

The research, undertaken by Syndicated Research Studies on behalf of TMB in Q2 2007, reports that 73% of re-spondents are confident brokers will want to work with them.

This shows a big increase from similar research three months ago, when just 57% of packagers predicted broker interest.

Just 11% of the packagers polled expected indifference from brokers this year.

Nigel Payne, managing director of TMB, says: “These figures illustrate how important the packager market is to brokers. Many realise packagers are an essential part of their work and will help them to achieve future success.”
