Headed by Neil Weston (pictured), Scout will allow Yopa to offer what it described as an “improved, joined-up service” to all customers.
Scout is a new organisation and part of the Primis network. It will service the whole of the mortgage market and is offering its customers a one-off lifetime fee.
With four brokers onboarded, Yopa plans to grow and expand the organisation as soon as possible, increasing to 10 brokers by the end of Q1 2020.
The brokers will be based in Yopa’s contact centres in Watford and Hinckley and will be available outside of typical banking hours.
Anyone with a YopaHub account can access the service.
Weston said: “As well as mortgages, our brokers are able to offer additional services such as life insurance, critical illness cover and income protection.”
