MT awards night set for March 7

The Mortgage Times Group will host its second annual awards ceremony on March 7 this year at Claridges in London.

Sponsored by Platform, the event is an opportunity for Mortgage Times to reward its top lender and broker partners across the UK.

Titles to be scooped at the awards include appointed representative of the year, directly authorised broker of the year, best buy-to-let-lender and best sub-prime lender.

Christopher May, director of Mortgage Times, says: “During the past few years the company has experienced fantastic growth and the past year has been no different. Therefore we feel we are in a good position to honour the success of our partners by holding our second annual awards. This should be a fantastic night.

“We are now the biggest packager in the UK as well as having one of the largest networks in the industry, and these awards have been designed to thank the associates who have helped elevate us to this position.”

Richard Beardshaw, head of sales at Platform, says: “Despite their relative infancy the Mortgage Times awards are a celebrated and respected fixture in the events timetable and we are proud to be this year’s official sponsor.

“The growth of the business and the success it has achieved in recent years has been phenomenal and our relationship with it has gone from strength to strength. We wish everyone nominated the best of luck and look forward to what is bound to be an enjoyable evening for everyone involved.”
