Personal Touch commercial director Dave Edwards (pictured) says: “Second charge has soared in popularity in recent years, thanks in no small part to the innovative approach to criteria and product design of the lenders in the field.

“Consumers are starting to catch on to the multitude of benefits and uses offered by second charge products and at Personal Touch we want to be able to give our brokers access to the best providers in the market so that their customers can reap these benefits too.”
