Brokers using Clever Lending now have access to Pepper Money’s full range of specialist residential and buy-to-let mortgage products.
Launched in 2014, Clever Lending offers a packaging service that helps brokers to source mortgages for clients who don’t meet the criteria of mainstream lenders.
Sam Kirtikar, managing director of Clever Lending, commented: “With our growing introducer demand and the ever-developing market, it’s crucial we ensure our customers have access to the best solutions on the market, and partnering with forward-thinking and progressive lenders such as Pepper will enable us to do just that.”
Rob Barnard, sales director of Pepper Money, said that as changing demographics, credit commitments and employment trends lead to many more customers who don’t meet the automated approach of a credit score, specialist is becoming ‘the new mainstream’.
“We review each case on its own merits and our lending decisions are made by a team of skilled underwriters, which means that we can look beyond a client’s score,” he said.
“Brokers using Pepper have access to products with transparent criteria and competitive rates and we are really pleased to be able to share this approach with brokers using Clever Lending.”
