Mark Bullard (pictured), head of sales at NatWest, commented: “Having reviewed our portfolio we have made a few adjustments to rates to reflect the current market conditions and balance our mix of business.”

Bullard continued: “I am delighted that we have added to our already extensive range of intermediary mortgages with the introduction of our product transfer mortgages enabling brokers to help current NatWest mortgage holders to switch to a new NatWest deal.”

Aside from product changes, NatWest also made headlines recently, when Mortgage Solutions reported on brokers’ query over the bank’s product transfer fees.
