Join AR Network

Connect Network is an award-winning platform created by brokers for brokers. Having undertaken the same paths and faced the same challenges, we deeply understand the intricacies of our industry. We’ve walked the walk and are committed to continuing this journey alongside you.
Not every mortgage network suits every mortgage broker. Therefore, you need to research and pick a network that will benefit you the most. What is good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander.

We aim to provide something different from the main mortgage networks you have heard about. While others seek to recruit large numbers of mortgage brokers and firms, we do not discriminate. Our vision is to support mortgage companies regardless of size while maintaining a personal and professional approach to helping them succeed. We focus on sustainable growth, fully supporting the existing network and providing a platform for brokers to grow.

If we can’t do that, we will fail in our objective. We are not in this business to make things hard for you, as you might have experienced with other networks. We aim to provide solutions, not create barriers and cause network nightmares.

What Do We Offer as a Mortgage Network?

At the core of our mission is a steadfast commitment to your business’s growth and prosperity. We pride ourselves on being a sustainable network dedicated to fostering long-term relationships. Unlike vast, impersonal organisations, we ensure individual members do not feel like mere numbers.

Personalised Attention and Support:

Our guiding principle is ‘value.’ We deeply invest in making each member feel truly valued. Your voice is heard, and your opinions are considered. Joining our network means you become a vital part of our community. You are an integral member of our team, and your success is our success.

Tailored Partnerships:

We believe in tailored solutions and understand the unique aspects of your business. By knowing the ins and outs of your operations, we align our resources with your business goals. This bespoke approach ensures we work together as cohesive partners, maximising your business’s potential.

Growth and Development Opportunities:

Our network supports your growth in tangible, impactful ways. We provide access to a broad spectrum of mortgage products and services. Additionally, we offer training and professional development opportunities. We aim to support your current needs and prepare you for future challenges and opportunities.

Community and Collaboration:

Joining our network means becoming part of a community. We encourage collaboration among our members, believing that shared knowledge and experiences are invaluable. This community aspect creates a richer, more supportive environment. Members learn from each other, share insights, and collectively advance.

Transparent Communication:

We maintain open lines of communication with all our network members. Transparency is key to our operations. We ensure you are always informed and engaged with broader network activities. Regular updates, feedback sessions, and open forums keep the lines of communication vibrant and effective.

A Commitment to Integrity:

Above all, we operate with integrity. Our interactions and advice are always straightforward and honest. We strive for ethical practices in all our dealings. You can trust us to prioritise your best interests.

In essence, our mortgage network is designed to be dynamic, supportive, and enriching. We provide you with the tools and the right atmosphere to grow your business. Join us, and let’s build a future where every member excels.

A Mortgage Network for Non-CAS Advisers | Navigating Your Path Forward

Joining a supportive mortgage network is crucial for newly qualified advisers without Competent Adviser Status (CAS). Our network understands the challenges and uncertainties of entering the mortgage industry. Therefore, we provide the guidance and support you need.

Opportunities for AR Firms and RIs

Depending on your circumstances and career goals, you may join as an Appointed Representative (AR) firm or a Registered Individual (RI). Each pathway offers unique advantages.

As an AR Firm: You operate under our network’s umbrella, gaining access to resources, compliance support, and extensive lender and product panels. This option suits those looking to start or grow their own business with an established network’s backing.

As a Registered Individual: If you prefer not to manage a firm, becoming an RI lets you focus on advising clients within our network. This role provides direct support and fewer administrative tasks, enabling you to build client relationships and hone advisory skills.

Tailored Guidance and Honest Appraisals

We believe in a personalised approach, as one size does not fit all in mortgage advising. We take the time to understand your background, skills, and professional aspirations. Based on this understanding, we honestly appraise your fit within our network. Our goal is a mutually beneficial decision that sets the stage for your growth and success.

Support for Non-CAS Advisers

Our network offers structured support for those without CAS to gain confidence and qualifications. This includes:

Mentorship Programs: Benefit from the wisdom and experience of seasoned advisers who guide you through complex scenarios and client interactions.

Training and Development: Access ongoing training modules to update you on industry regulations, trends, and best practices.

Compliance and Regulatory Guidance: Navigate mortgage compliance intricacies with our expert support. We ensure you meet all industry standards and regulations.

In summary, joining our network provides a supportive path forward for new mortgage advisers. You can thrive in the UK mortgage market with opportunities tailored to your needs and comprehensive support.

Why Choose Connect Network?

We understand choosing a mortgage network is one of the most important decisions you will make. There are many factors to consider, including the level of support offered, commission splits, and the network’s attitude to social media and helping your business grow.

We are mortgage advisers ourselves, running our own firm, so we understand the trials and tribulations you go through every day as an adviser. There is so much that goes into the day-to-day running of your business. The last thing you want is to worry about the network placing unnecessary restrictions on you. A good mortgage network should support your goals while keeping you safe and compliant.

Switch to Connect Network, and experience the difference. We are here to make your business thrive, providing the personal support you need. Join us, and become part of a network that truly values you.
