Earlier this year, Virgin Money launched a national advertising campaign to make consumers aware of the benefits of using a mortgage broker.
Consumers shopping around for a mortgage will be directed to speak to their existing mortgage broker and those without an intermediary will be made aware of a website created by Virgin Money which hosts intermediary contact details.
In July, the bank launched an intermediary product switching service, designed by brokers, which promised to pay a ‘fair and competitive’ procuration fee for retained residential and buy-to-let customers.
