Network Data adds Victoria to lending panel

Network Data has added Victoria Mortgages to its packaged panel of lenders.

This addition now takes its packaged panel to 10 lenders.

Simon Read, business development director at Victoria, says: Were really pleased to be working with the packaging team at Network Data.

We understand that many Network Data appointed representatives have wanted to get access to us through its packaging team since we announced our new pricing earlier this year. Our strategy adds value to our partners.

We work exclusively with packagers, giving them security that were not working against them, whilst using the low-cost structure to bring market leading pricing to the market.

We expect our new market leading prime range and our near prime/light ranges to be a hit with Network Data intermediaries.”

George Fleming, lender partnership manager, at Network Data, says: I am confident that Victorias attractive product range and service proposition will add value to our panel.

This has already been demonstrated by a great deal of interest and anticipation from our brokers in advance of the launch.

“We look forward to working with the Victoria team and growing the volume of packaged business.
