Homeloan Partnership adds Affirmative to panel

Homeloan Partnership, the Worthing based network, has added Affirmative Finance to its panel.

Roger Morris, sales and marketing director at Affirmative, says: “We were delighted to be invited to join the HLP panel and it was a great bonus that this coincided with the Development Forums. So we were able to meet so many of the HLP members as well as give them a full briefing on the Affirmative products and service ethic during the formal part of the forum days.

Chris Tanner, managing director of HLP says: “Affirmative Finance is a great addition to our expanding panel of providers and reinforces the value that we provide for our member firms. Their message went down extremely well with our AR firms where the product offering and how it can help clients was very well received.”
