UTB reveals 2017 broker promotion winner

United Trust Bank (UTB) has announced that the winner of its 2017 ‘Taste of the high life’ broker promotion is Kay Singh of ChaseBlue Loans.

UTB’s 2017 annual broker promotion gave participants an opportunity to win regular prizes at leading restaurants and ultimately a British Airways holiday voucher to the value of £5,000. Participants simply completed UTB’s broker polls or took part in event prize draws to gain multiple entries to the promotion.

Kay Singh from ChaseBlue Loans was the first name randomly chosen from the entries qualifying for the draw and was presented with his £5,000 British Airways holiday voucher by United Trust Bank’s business development manager Mike Walters.

Singh, senior broker manager at ChaseBlue Loans, said: “I still can’t quite believe I’ve won the big prize. I’ve no idea where to go yet but with £5,000 to spend it’s going to be great wherever we end up. ChaseBlue have worked with UTB for a few years now, starting with bridging and, in the last 18 months, with second charge loans as well.

“I’ve been doing their broker polls regularly and earning a few entries into the draw. They only take a few minutes so it’s a no-brainer. I never expected to win anything of course but it just goes to show that if your name is in the hat you’ve got as a good a chance as anyone.

“We’ve got excellent relationships with UTB, especially with Buster Tolfree, Jigar Patel and Mike Walters. UTB are a great lender to work with and the team are regular visitors to us in Barry. This time though I was particularly pleased to see Mike and the envelope he’d brought with him.”

Buster Tolfree, UTB’s commercial director – Mortgages, added: “I’m really pleased for Kay, it’s a great prize. Ben Gillespie and everyone at ChaseBlue Loans have been great supporters of UTB over the years and we have built a solid relationship with them through bridging and seconds. Although any broker registered with UTB could have won our ‘Taste of the high life’ promotion, I have to say I’m particularly happy to see it go to someone from one of our most supportive broker partners.”
