Our Specialist Network
Connect’s Network is a unique Network dedicated to the needs of both mainstream mortgage advisers and advisers who work predominantly in the specialist markets.
When you join the Connect Network, you benefit from a panel of over 155 lenders across the mainstream and specialist markets. For advisers new to the mortgage market, we offer full training and support via our Connect Academy.
What is a Network?
To be a Mortgage Adviser, you need to 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 take responsibility to ensure that Members adhere to the FCA requirements.
