Bank of Ireland joins Openwork panel
Bank of Ireland (BOI) UK has joined Openwork's network to expand its distribution of mortgage products through intermediaries.

The partnership is part of BOI UK’s re-entry into the broker market following a pilot in December which involved selling its mortgage range through three estate agencies. The lender has planned a staged roll out throughout the year to widen its distribution as part of the bank’s growth plans.

Alison Pallett, director of sales, Bank of Ireland UK, said: “This is an exciting time for us and a big step forward in our growth agenda. We’ve expanded our sales and underwriting teams, and opened a new processing centre, to support our expansion and to ensure we continue to deliver excellent service.

“We’re also developing a new mortgage platform that will launch later this year.”

Paul Shearman, proposition director for Openwork, said: “Our partnership with Bank of Ireland comes as part of our desire to work with the very best of the UK’s lenders. With such a strong history of lending in the intermediary market, I am delighted to be introducing Bank of Ireland products to our advisers and know they will be well received across the network”.
