Abbey guarantees product accuracy on Trigold

Abbey for Intermediaries has pledged to automatically verify all its products on Trigold’s sourcing system to ensure brokers are receiving up-to-date and accurate information.

Abbey says the move is in response to brokers’ concerns about the accuracy and timeliness of products on sourcing systems.

Accordingly, Abbey will ensure that its most popular products, including all of its flexi and buy-to-let deals, have been verified and that in future all new products listed on the Trigold system will be automatically verified as soon as they are posted.

Ricky Okey, managing director of Abbey For Intermediaries, says: “We are committed to delivering the products and services that brokers want. We have listened to brokers and introduced this important upgrade in service in response to their feedback.

“Last year we invested significantly in developments aimed at offering an enhanced service to brokers. In 2008, we will continue to work hard on a number of initiatives due to come on stream over the year, to further support mortgage intermediaries and their clients. “
