Just Mortgage Packaging has been appointed to the key partner panel of specialist lender Money Partners.

The new arrangement means that JMP, and its panel of introducers will get direct access to Money Partners’ range of mortgage products spanning near-prime to medium adverse, and self-certification to buy-to-let.

Anthony O’Callaghan, managing director of JMP, says: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Money Partners. They offer an excellent suite of products and, importantly for us, we can discuss our cases direct with their underwriters.

“We believe that this benefits our broker partners because in this market it’s all about relationships, and Money Partners have focused on this area.”

Martin Gilsenan, sales director at Money Partners, says: “An AMPD hallmark is its members’ deep appreciation of what brokers and lenders require from a partner and how to add value at every stage of the packaging process.

“Just Mortgage Packaging exhibits these qualities in abundance. At a time when many packagers are feeling vulnerable, our new partnership sends a clear message that we remain upbeat about the long-term prospects for our sector.”
