“This expansion of our intermediary sales team underlines our commitment to supporting brokers and strengthening our intermediary proposition further.
“Brokers can utilise Accord’s support network in the way that best suits their business needs – through face-to-face advice, on the phone or via our web chat facility.
“The developments are part of our ongoing commitment to expand our broker support service. Our new and improved sales team compliments the changes we have made to our underwriting approach, providing brokers with common-sense lending decisions and direct access to our underwriting team.”
