MoneyQuest seals deal with comparison site

ROB CLIFFORD: THIS IS A BIG COUP FOR US
ROB CLIFFORD: THIS IS A BIG COUP FOR US

MoneyQuest has replaced London & Country as the referral partner for Comparethemarket.com.

MoneyQuest will exclusively provide the comparison website with a mortgage advisory service.

Rob Clifford, non-executive director at MoneyQuest, says: “We could not be more pleased that Comparethemarket.com has selected us as its sole mortgage advice partner.

“This is a major coup for us and is a relationship that will be beneficial for both businesses as well as their customers.”

Jeremy Moll, commercial director at Comparethemarket.com, says: “We are looking forward to working with MoneyQuest and providing our customers with a comprehensive mortgage advice service, with the reassurance of having mortgage experts on hand to talk through their needs.”

Mortgage Strategy reported in January that the comparison website was reviewing its mortgage proposition and reviewing its agreement with L&C.

L&C announced last week that it is to handle all telephone enquiries on behalf of Moneysupermarket. com following a new deal between the firms. L&aC has been taking surplus telephone calls on behalf of the comparison website since the end of last year, when Moneysupermarket.com’s inhouse advisers could not cope with call volumes.

    Have to agree this in not treating cutomers fairly…

    I have to agree that it is a pretty big contradiction. Why on earth would a company like comparethemarket.com want to associate itself with a company that built up loads of debt and new they couldn’t afford to pay it back, so didn’t. It was easier just to rename its company and get rid of the debt whilst trading the very same day. No doubt that first comment was written by one of the higher management staff.

    Surely a contradiction in terms. “ComparetheMarket”. Moneyquest is tied to L&G Mortgage Club which correct me if I am wrong isn’t comparing the full market.

    Great news to hear a broker bucking the trend and expanding in this market. Especially a Scottish one. Well done moneyquest!
