Following the uncertainty stemming from the referendum decision last week to leave the European Union, specialist lender Together has reassured brokers that it will work in partnership with them to deal with any temporary fallout from the referendum.
Marc Goldberg (pictured), Together’s commercial CEO, said: “Whilst it’s too early to understand the resulting impact the Brexit vote is going to have on the UK economy, we want to reassure our broker partners that we’re committed to supporting them in overcoming any potential hurdles, so that we come through this transitional period working together, just as we’ve always done.
“As one of the few independent lenders to have traded successfully throughout the credit crisis, our 42 years of experience and knowledge of operating in this sector stands us in good stead for facing any challenges that may arise as a result of the vote to leave. In particular, our strong financial position and committed funding channels mean that our brokers and our customers can have total confidence in our stability.
“Our common sense approach to lending and our willingness to look at each case on its individual merits have established us a leader in our field and we’ll continue to take that approach as we move forward.”
Together has a loan book in excess of £1.7 billion, with new lending for the 12 months to March 2016 standing at £971 million.
