Shawbrook Bank launches new ‘broker hub’

Shawbrook Bank has launched a new ‘broker hub’ to make it easier for brokers to deal with the lender.

The hub allows brokers to source fully credit-searched online quotes, track cases, upload documents and download case studies or other forms relating to case submission.

Sales and marketing director Karen Bennett says: “We are dedicated to providing the best facilities available to our brokers, in order to make all processes as stress-free and time-efficient as possible.

We believe the improved functionality, along with the new look and feel, will add real value to our broker offering.”
