Fluent for Advisers and Fluent Money now have a collective head count of 119, up from 85 last year.
Tim Wheeldon, chief operating officer told Mortgage Solutions: “Post MCD, growth in the second charge market was going to take time to come on stream, but it was going to happen. We had planned for that growth and thanks to our work with the intermediary community, the projected figures we had been forecasting have materialised . In turn this has meant that our proactive recruitment strategy has been spot on.”
Wheeldon says Fluent is witnessing “a greater appreciation of the use of second charge loans by the wider broker community”.
He added: “We continue to look for able individuals to recruit. They don’t need second charge experience as we can provide comprehensive training. What we are looking for are people who have an outward going personality and enjoy communicating with customers.”
