"It allows us, as an overall business, to have more control and clarity over our respective offerings to the intermediary community."
Smart Money has undergone a strategic restructure which sees the launch of Smart Money Finance as the focal point for all unregulated business activity.
Smart Money Finance will be overseen by Managing Director Paul Crewe and Commercial Director Mike Scott. The move will see Smart Money concentrate on all regulated business and Smart Money Finance focus on all unregulated activity to incorporate niche products within the buy-to-let, bridging and commercial sectors. Smart Money Finance already has an exclusive distribution agreement in place with private lender PMJ Capital.
The aim of the restructure is to better differentiate between unregulated and regulated business offerings. This concentration of resources will allow each part of the business to operate independently but with the common goal of providing additional transparency for introducers alongside the highest possible service standards.
Paul Crewe, Managing Director at Smart Money, commented: “This is a move we’ve been considering for some time as it allows us, as an overall business, to have more control and clarity over our respective offerings to the intermediary community. As a forward-thinking intermediary-focused distributor, we recognise the need to evolve and the influence of regulatory directives across different areas of specialist lending.
“We have established many great relationships within the intermediary market over the years and this restructure will help ensure that intermediaries have even greater access to the most competitive and comprehensive range of regulated and unregulated loans.
