Paradigm announces award winners

NatWest Intermediary Solutions was voted the best residential lender, BM Solutions was awarded for buy-to-let, Precise Mortgages was the best specialist lender while Just Retirement was certified as the best equity release lender.

Virgin Money received the accolade of best overall lender, while other award winners were Friends Life for best life protection provider and best critical illness provider, Legal and General for best general insurance provider and Exeter Family Friendly for best income protection provider.

Bob Hunt, chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services, said: “We would like to offer very warm congratulations to the first winners of the Paradigm Lender and Provider Awards – given these are voted for by our partner member firms it is a true reflection of the quality of their products and services in what is a particularly competitive environment.

“Our winners have therefore delivered an excellent performance in support of these firms, which is even more commendable for our lender winners as this has been achieved in a period of considerable regulatory change.

“Voting continues throughout the year and our hope is that we see all our lender and provider partners upping their game in order to secure these highly coveted awards in future months.”

The awards are voted for by Paradigm’s authorised partner members every month, while the current winners are determined from the voting results over the last three months.
