Winners of second NatWest Local Hero Mortgage Awards revealed

 

NatWest is using the awards to recognise broker firms that have gone beyond everyday expectations to put the customer and their local community at the heart of their business. These achievements have only been magnified by the impact of the pandemic.

Across the 12 regional categories, firms were asked to demonstrate their position as a local mortgage and protection expert, their commitment to quality advice, excellent customer outcomes, and their positive contributions to the local community.

The judging process also urged firms to show a clear focus on a more sustainable approach to reducing the social and environmental impact of their business practices and how they encourage others to take a more sustainable approach to environmental issues.

NatWest head of intermediary mortgages Graham Felstead said the lender was delighted to recognise its Local Heroes again.

He added that while it was disappointing this acknowledgement could not be done in person, it did not detract from the hard work, commitment and community focus of all the firms who participated.

“The awards are specifically aimed at recognising the hard work and commitment of mortgage adviser firms that have gone above and beyond normal expectations,” he said.

“These firms have exemplified putting the customer and their local community at the heart of everything they do, in addition to providing sound financial advice for those consumers within their locality.

“We can see again that there are many firms doing exceptional things in their communities.”
