GMAC-RFCs Partner range applications exceed 1bn

Since the launch of its Partner range in March this year, GMAC-RFC has experienced strong levels of demand for its exclusive product range among packagers.

The Partners division now reports business level increases of up to 45%.

To date, applications on the range have exceeded 1bn with some Partners reporting that their business levels with GMAC have increased significantly.

The formulation of the tailored product range for packagers was the result of a lengthy process of research and planning and was intended to mirror GMAC-RFCs strong intermediary business growth on the packager side.

To date there are around 70 partners on the panel and some, such as Pink have reported an impressive rise in business with the UKs 10th largest mortgage lender of up to 45% since launch.

Roger Brown, director of Partners, says: There is nothing as rewarding as a successful partnership and Partners has proved to be that and more.

We took a long time to prepare for this new venture because we wanted to get it right and I think the figures speak for themselves!

The success is down to the competitive product range and our Partners enthusiasm to promote the range on our behalf.
