Reliance Bank has joined up with Knowledge Bank to improve the way its mortgage criteria is shared with the mortgage intermediary market.
Reliance Bank was formed by William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army, and sees itself as a mortgage lender with a social conscience.
Gareth Byrne (pictured), head of mortgages for Reliance Bank, said: “I am delighted to partner up with Knowledge Bank, we see this as another way to help advisers find our residential criteria. More and more people are looking to borrow money in a socially responsible way. That’s exactly what your clients can expect with Reliance Bank.”
Matthew Corker, lender relationship manager for Knowledge Bank, added: “Speaking with Gareth and the team, their passion for socially responsible lending really shone through. Reliance Bank’s common-sense lending approach together with their broad range of criteria including shared ownership and first-time buyer focused products are great for brokers.
“We’re thrilled to partner with them and make their entire residential criteria available to all of our users. I genuinely think this lender will be a great addition to Knowledge Bank.”
