Homebank says brokers keen to sell firms

National brokerage Homebank Financial Services says has been inundated with offers from brokerages looking to sell their businesses or expressing an interest in merging with Homebank .

At the beginning of September the Northampton-based firm confirmed it is seeking brokerages interested in selling or merging with Homebank and appointed Steve Morrissey as national recruitment coordinator to help organise initial enquiries.

George Dodds, chairman of Homebank, says the proposition has a lot to offer intermediaries who want to discover what his company has to offer.

He says: “Principals who have already come to see us are surprised that Homebank has a formula which really works in today’s marketplace.

“But once they see our point of sale to completion integrated systems and understand our business model, they have been keen to talk further about the possibilities of working more closely with us.”
