Manchester-based mortgage club APS Europe hopes to build on a successful first year after a 200% increase in membership over the last 12 months.
In addition to attracting new introducers to the direct submission club throughout the course of the year, APS Europe's panel of lenders grew from 30 at launch to 38 by December 2002.
APS Europe says this growth is due to the simplicity of the services provided and the good relationships established between APS staff and their introducers.
Michael Goldman, managing director, says: “APS offers brokers a wide range of lenders with no minimum levels of business required and with our helpdesk and enhanced procuration fees, brokers have told us they are impressed with the quick, efficient and friendly service provided, the knowledge and assistance of the call team and the comprehensive choice of lenders.
“Although we expect to increase our membership in 2003, our primary aim is to consolidate and maximise the business we do with existing introducers and enhance the relationships we developed during the last year.”
