Enness Private Clients launches high net worth referral service

Enness Private Clients is today launching a high net worth referral service for brokers, IFAs and wealth managers.

The service is aimed at advisers who have clients seeking large loans but may be unable to secure them through mainstream lenders.

Enness says its service will enable advisers to introduce the client and access a number of alternative funding solutions from private and offshore banks as well as individual funders.

The brokerage, which specialises in the £500,000 plus mortgage market, is also finalising its online system – Enness Introducers – which will allow advisers to keep track of their client’s case.

Hugh Wade-Jones, director of Enness Private Clients, says: “In today’s marketplace those seeking large loans often have very few, if any, options within the mainstream mortgage market. 

“We have built up our expertise in this area and now have relationships with a whole range of private and offshore banks, as well as other private funding options, that are simply not accessible to others. 

“This is why we have launched our referral service to ensure that finance professionals who have these types of clients have an option to secure funding if the mainstream avenues are not open.”
