Vantage Finance and Shawbrook Bank complete £10m together in February


Vantage FinanceVantage Finance has written more than £10m of loans with Shawbrook Bank’s Commercial Mortgages division in a single month. The impressive volume, achieved in February, was driven by a large number of quality cases and follows a strong year for Vantage during 2014 and early 2015.

Vantage is a market leader in the commercial mortgage industry when it comes to the volume of quality cases it places. The master broker is one of Shawbrook Bank’s ‘strategic partners’, recognised for the level of conversion rates achieved on initial submissions and ultimate conversion to successful loan completion.

Lucy Hodge, Director of Vantage Finance, said:

“We focus on providing a service that combines efficiency, thoroughness, and an in-depth knowledge of our lenders and their criteria. This approach allows us to consistently achieve high conversion rates with quality business, and is the central driver behind the volumes completed by Vantage month after month.

“We have formed a strong partnership with Shawbrook and our team has worked hard with the Bank’s Commercial Mortgages division to achieve these excellent results in only the second month of the year. Achieving both quality and volume is testament to our relationship with Shawbrook, and we plan to build on this success and continue our growth trajectory in the months to come.”

Karen Bennett, Sales and Marketing Director, Commercial Mortgages, Shawbrook Bank, said:

“We are delighted to see the team at Vantage experiencing a level of success that is truly well deserved. As one of our larger ‘Strategic Partner’ brokers, Vantage has established a long-standing relationship with Shawbrook, with a deep understanding of our requirements and a close working relationship across our specialist teams.

“Such a strong number over multiple cases in February is an indication of the efficiency Vantage has managed to implement across the business, and their conversion rates are amongst the highest we see. The combination of these factors brings what we believe to be a market-leading proposition to both clients and introducers, and we look forward to working with Lucy and her team throughout 2015 to build on this impressive start.”
