The move will give brokers access to the bank’s new range of commercial finance products which are targeted at supporting trading businesses.
Connect sales director Kevin Thomson said: “This is an exciting new development in commercial banking, which will further enhance our commercial and property finance offering, meaning our appointed representatives and brokers in the wider market who utilise our placement services can continue to access the best possible lending solutions in the market.”
Atom Bank business development manager Gareth Norman said: “We are already supporting many SMEs throughout the country as a result of the supportive actions of our authorised network, and we look forward to expanding the reach of this support in a way which disrupts the current status quo.”
Atom Bank is a new digital only service, which serves clients via apps. The bank is due to roll out its intermediary-only mortgage proposition later this year with a target of £3bn of mortgage lending within three years of launch.
