Specialist lender Together has scooped a top industry award for its short-term finance, voted for by industry peers.
Thousands of brokers from across the UK have cast their vote – and have chosen Together as ‘Best short-term/bridging lender’ at the Financial Reporter Awards 2017.
As well as winning the top accolade for its bridging finance, Together was also highly commended in the ‘Best specialist lender’ category at the highly-regarded industry awards, which are now in their eighth year. The winners’ party will be held at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.
Developed to support and promote excellent service and good practice across the industry, the awards are voted for by brokers and intermediaries and saw a record number of voters this year, at more than 7,000.
Marc Goldberg, commercial CEO for Together, right, said:
“It’s an honour to have been recognised by brokers for our bridging finance offering. We strive to ensure that our products and processes meet their needs, and this award is a great measure of our success. Our valued partnerships with the broker community have played a huge part in our continuing growth here at Together, and we’re very grateful for their support.
“This award is also a result of the hard work of our dedicated colleagues, who consistently go the extra mile to deliver for our partners, often against tight deadlines, to ensure the best outcome for the customer.”
Together has recently overhauled its bridging application process which will see the application time for a broker slashed from thirty minutes to just two. With the new simplified process, intermediaries will be able to generate a quote in as little as sixty seconds, and receive an offer in two minutes, using the lender’s portal, My Broker Venue.
As a specialist lender to niche markets through an extensive distribution network, Together, which was established in 1974, offers short-term finance, auction finance, residential, buy-to-let and commercial mortgages, and secured loans.
Recent accolades include: Best Buy-to-Let Mortgage Provider, Bridging Finance Provider of the Year, Finance Company of the Year, Best Bridging Lender, Bridging Lender of the Year, Large Company Management Team of the Year (North West), The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, Best Service from a Bridging Finance Provider, Best for Auction Financing, Alternative Finance Provider of the Year, Best Secured Loan Provider
