"This a major step forward in improving the broker and customer journey and enhancing our proposition to a wider market.”"
Specialist lender Step One Finance has launched its online broker portal following a trial.
The portal gives advisers the ability to get a quick decision in principle, along with easier application processing and status tracking, whilst still enabling underwriters to make individual case assessments.
Steve Khan, Head of Commercial Development, commented: “This a major step forward in improving the broker and customer journey and enhancing our proposition to a wider market.”
Step One has also appointed Tom Nelson as BDM for the North of England and Scotland. Tom has over 15 years’ experience in the second charge and mortgage industry, most recently at Gopher Money.
In addition, Jamie Goddard, Paul Terzulli and Mustafa Hussain have all been promoted to Underwriting Team Leaders and Afsheen Mahomed has recently joined the Underwriting Department.
Martin Porter, Head of Lending, said: “These are all important additions and promotions to the Step One team in an exciting period of growth for the Company.”
