Amber products to be offered through mutuals

Mutual One has now launched its Mutual One Mortgage Partnership initiative, allowing societies to offer Amber’s product range through their branches, complementing their own mortgage product range.

The mutual societies have access to Amber’s full range of products; from near prime to super heavy adverse, and from buy-to-let to self-certification.

The first mutual society to offer Amber’s products through its branches is the Hanley Economic. A number of other societies will be following over the coming weeks.

The Mutual One Mortgage Partnership initiative is being launched through a marketing campaign called ‘Step Inside a Mutual’ intended to alert the local communities around participating building societies to the fact that their local mutual can help; whatever their circumstances.

Mike Perry, associate director of sales and marketing at Amber, says: “I am very pleased that Amber has this opportunity to work with mutual building societies and I hope that this will be the start of a relationship that we can develop in the future.”

Richard Carson, general manager of business development at Mutual One, says: “I am delighted that Amber is partnering Mutual One to develop this initiative designed for mutuals to both attract and retain customers.

David Lownds, head of marketing at Hanley, says: “The Hanley believes in offering a choice proposition to borrowers. This initiative will complement our product range and will further enhance our reputation to be a top provider of mortgage solutions in our heartland.”
