Mortgage Intermediary Focus - UK - May 2012
“Mortgage intermediaries are set to face yet more challenges over the next few years. The current mortgage market environment is lacklustre although there is positivity to be found in its increasing stability. The threat from direct sales is set to adversely affect the intermediary business in the short-term. Moreover, the need to be compliant with regulatory changes will only serve to further test many intermediary businesses to their limit. In order to survive this difficult period, intermediaries must show that they offer an invaluable service to the mortgage market and focus on areas such as buy-to-let in the near-term.”
– Stephanie Seenan – Financial Services Analyst
