Foundation Home Loans has introduced an online ‘Broker Hub’, designed to provide advisers with additional resource for the specialist mortgage market.
The Broker Hub will feature regular business updates from the Foundation team, and from across the specialist mortgages marketplace.
It will also provide better business concepts, marketing tips, industry opinion, and a coffee break section which includes an online game and lockdown Q&As with a number of industry figures.
Foundation has also returned to new lending with a new set of both buy-to-let and residential products.
For buy-to-let all products are available to individuals and limited company borrowers, with a choice of both two- and five-year fixed rates in its F1, F2 and F3 ranges as well as for both HMO and Large HMO.
Foundation has also launched a new specialist residential range offering both two-year fixed and variable-rate products for F1, F2 and F3 borrowers.
Jeff Knight (pictured), director of marketing at Foundation Home Loans, said: “In this unknown and challenging landscape, we feel it’s important for lenders to be as informative, transparent and connected as possible. And the launch of our Broker Hub will certainly help us improve our levels of intermediary engagement moving forward.
“This is not just a Covid-19 related response; we have been working on developing this concept for some time as we are constantly evaluating ways in which to support our intermediary partners. Our aim is to help them better understand the many intricacies of the specialist lending world, successfully explore the opportunities as they arise, and there is also the opportunity to have a bit of fun along the way.”
