Pink launches RBS semi exclusives

Pink Home Loans has launched two semi-exclusive products in conjunction with RBS Intermediary Partners.

Both products are discount trackers, the first has a headline rate 5.19% and offers a free standard valuation, whilst the second has a headline rate of 5.23%.

Both products are available for purchases only, for loans up to 95% LTV, up to £250,000.

They are available to Pink Home Loans’ appointed representatives and directly authorised intermediaries on a direct submission basis.

David Copland, deputy managing director at Pink, says: “Pink is the only network to be able to offer these competitive products to its DAs, in addition to its ARs.

“They give the broker excellent rates for the first-time buyer market and the fees free option will save their client money when buying their home.”

Chris Pearson, director of intermediary mortgages at RBS, says: “We are delighted to be able to offer Pinks’ members these great deals.

“As a lender that is committed to growing its intermediary business it is important that we are able to work closely with our intermediary partners in the development of strong product propositions.

“I hope that Pink members find these two discounted tracker products, from our purchase brand RBS, attractive and that they are the first in a long line of exclusives we’ll be able to offer.”
