eGateway teams up with Orbiter

eGateway has signed a deal with Orbiter Distribution to offer its mortgage and secured loan sourcing system free to eGateway members.

Orbiter gives members access to a whole of market sourcing facility but also a mortgage club.

Kelvin Cooper of eGateway says: “I have known the people at Orbiter Distribution for a very long time and have seen Orbiter get better and better to the point that without doubt it really offers tremendous benefits in terms of the facilities available and all at no cost to our members.”

Robert Kelly, design director at Orbiter Distribution, says: “The way eGateway just keeps it simple and offers members a straight forward, no nonsense approach to transacting business and where they believe in the principles that great products and service are paramount, give us the confidence that we can deliver the same to eGateway members.”


The iron fist being applied to those on front line is wrong

Imagine you go to bed knowing you have a business and wake up to find that your firm is now on the verge of going out of business because the Financial Services Authority and government have failed to monitor your principle effectively.

England vs Australia: pensions

Well, the cricket season is here, and England and Australia are stepping up to the wicket. Although we compete with each other in the sporting world, when it comes to pensions, Australia’s pension programme is held up as a model for our auto-enrolment initiative. Auto-enrolment was introduced because people weren’t saving enough into their pensions, and it is still early days but signs are positive. However, in Australia, saving into a pension is compulsory, and in fact employers are the ones who have to pay in. Employees in Australia can make additional contributions into their pensions, but they don’t have to. Should the onus be on the employer or employee to save? Well in the UK we think it’s both, but to get ‘adequate’ savings for retirement it’s the employee who has to pay more in.
