Connect for Intermediaries unveils new broker tools

Connect for Intermediaries has launched new features, tools and guides on its new website.

Connect’s website at now contains over 160 different lender product guides, while a new Tools & Resources section contains knowledge and information not commonly available to brokers. It provides free resources including a range of calculators such as a repayment calculator, a stamp duty calculator and a rental calculator. This area also outlines the offer Connect has negotiated for its brokers when using Knowledge Bank, the amazing new criteria search tool.

The rental calculator allows advisers to see how large a mortgage can be achieved with a given rental amount. It also allows brokers to select the interest rate and stress margin to be used to compare the differences in borrowing calculations between limited companies or individuals, for example.

The website now also contains details of the exclusives available either to network members or DAs under Connect’s packaging or referral options.

Liz Syms (pictured), CEO for Connect for Intermediaries, said: “We spent some months finding out what tools a broker would find most helpful when doing their job, particularly when placing more complex or specialist mortgage cases.

“All of these we have included on our website as a free range of tools and information. Brokers can, of course, still phone our specialist help desk if they need any additional help.

“We believe that Connect for Intermediaries now provides everything a broker needs in order to place every mortgage quickly and easily, maximising the amount of time they can spend with clients and enabling them to see more clients in a day than they could before.”
