Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB) will become the official mortgage broker partner for the FIA, which launched in February this year to offer consumers a quality-assured network brand that collaborates to enjoy commercial advantages.
MAB offers face-to-face advice across all UK postcodes through its 1,200 advisers, with telephone advice available to customers that prefer that option through six regional telephone advice centres.
Peter Brodnicki, CEO of Mortgage Advice Bureau, said: “FIA members benefit from a whole host of tailored solutions with MAB, and so we’re delighted to secure this exclusive partnership and support its members in delivering a premier mortgage service to its customers, and optimising the referral income opportunity.”
Graham Lock, founder and chairman of FIA, said: “There are some great mortgage brokers out there and many options were available to [us] but ultimately I chose MAB due to its diversity, national coverage and ability for my members to benefit from the best referral rates possible.
“I’ve known Peter for some time and look forward to working closely with him to optimise this partnership.”
The FIA provides access to an exclusive range of approved suppliers to its members which includes FIA member-only discounts, as well as quarterly national conferences, best practice sharing, mystery shopping, free Feefo review accounts and compliance assistance among other services.
MAB handles more than £14bn of loans annually, and is the first and only mortgage broker to have floated on the London Stock Exchange, having joined the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in November 2014.
