Enterprise Partners teams up with Creative

Enterprise Partners has added Creative Mortgage Solutions to its list of significant partnerships.

The appointment of the packager follows a doubling of Enterprises partner business in the first quarter of 2007.

Creative joins the 17 partners of Enterprise, which include Case Funding Centre, Red Broker, Credence, Capital Mortgage Connections, Premier Independent Mortages, Liberty, Go Processing and Taylor Made.

Kerry Saunders, managing director at Creative, says: The future for packagers and distributors is extremely bright provided they gain access to the technology and distribution required to embrace their opportunities.

“Having extensively reviewed the available options for Creative, we felt that Enterprise was by far the most attractive all-round proposition.

We are able to retain our independence, whilst still taking full advantage of its technology, in particular the EDGE system, and gain some access to unequalled distribution capability and market-leading exclusive schemes.

Terry Young, director of partners at Enterprise, says: Creative is an established, professional and successful packager in its own right, so this is a significant appointment for Enterprise Partners and a clear endorsement of our proposition.

“We look forward to working closely with Kerry and her team over the coming months and years, ensuring major success for us both.
