The second charge broker said volumes of new business have continued to increase. Fluent for Advisers, the company’s dedicated intermediary arm and Fluent Money have between them added staff in sales, case management and compliance roles.
Chief operating officer Tim Wheeldon (pictured) said growing demand for secured loans from the intermediary community has been the most significant factor in the recruitment drive.
“Our experience throughout the year has shown that the demand for a reliable whole of market second charge facility has undoubtedly been on the increase.
“We are also witnessing a greater appreciation of the use of second charge loans by the wider broker community and Fluent has been able to offer not only a great point of access for brokers but also maintained and improved its service to brokers,” he said.
Wheeldon added that the group is continuing its recruitment drive, training those who do not currently have second charge experience.
In July the firm announced that it had recruited 34 people in the first seven months of the year.
