"With a growing demand for green mortgages, Tandem’s range of flexible solutions and EPC discounted mortgages will add real value to our panel."
Tandem Bank has joined the lender panels of SimplyBiz Mortgages and Primis Mortgage Network.
Launched in 2014, Tandem was one of the UK's original digital challenger banks. The Bank’s mission is to become the UK’s greener digital bank and to help customers make more sustainable financial decisions.
Tandem Bank’s range of specialist mortgages includes rate reductions for customers with properties that have a home energy efficiency (EPC) rating of A, B or C.
It offers residential mortgages for loans up to £750,000, and can provide solutions for complex customers with bespoke underwriting to meet their individual needs.
Tandem’s full product range will be available to SimplyBiz Mortgages and Primis members, including the recently launched remortgage portfolio products which includes its reimagined legal process and streamlined processing requirements.
Martin Reynolds, CEO of SimplyBiz Mortgages, commented: “Adding such an innovative lender to our panel is a great way to start 2023. We have been working in the background with the excellent Mark Shelper for a few months to ensure that everything was ready for a smooth launch. If the proactive nature of Mark is matched by the rest of the Tandem team, which I am sure it will be when including the positivity of Roger Morris, then our members will enjoy working in partnership with them, and consequently helping more of their clients.”
Vikki Jefferies, proposition director at Primis, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Tandem Bank to our panel, in a move which ensures our brokers continue to have access to the broadest range of products available, in order to best serve their clients’ needs. With a growing demand for green mortgages, Tandem’s range of flexible solutions and EPC discounted mortgages will add real value to our panel.”
Roger Morris, director of sales and distribution at Tandem Bank, added: “I am absolutely delighted that SimplyBiz Mortgages has decided to partner with Tandem Bank. Not only does Tandem offer a great new lending resource to their brokers, but we also share the same passion for educating the mortgage industry, which has never been more vital than now, with the cost-of-living crisis hitting families across the UK. Our educational events will help SimplyBiz Mortgages members add tremendous value to their client dealings in 2023 and beyond.
“We are delighted to have been accepted and included on the Primis lender panel. I have known and worked with Primis over many years and understand better than many what an opportunity it is for a lender to gain a place on their panel. We will work hard with Primis brokers to establish our place at the top table of specialist lenders and especially through our unique reimagining of the remortgage process.”
