A Mortgage network is a company that offers comprehensive support to mortgage brokers and advisers. These networks generally provide a variety of services, encompassing:
Access to an extensive panel of lenders
Marketing and training initiatives
Business development assistance
When brokers become part of a mortgage network, they gain access to the network’s wealth of experience and resources. This, in turn, empowers them to expand their business and deliver an enhanced service to their clients.
To be a Mortgage Adviser, you must be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). You can obtain this authorisation directly with the FCA, but another way of obtaining the authorisation is to join a Network.
The Network holds the permissions from the FCA and then extends some or all of those permissions to its Members. This means Connect provides its Network Members with their regulatory authorisation to trade as Mortgage Advisers and takes responsibility for ensuring that Members adhere to the FCA requirements.
