RAMP takes on Oxygen

Oxygen is based in Leicester and its ascension brings the number of associate members to four since the membership was launched in March this year. Oxygen joins KGB Packaging, Clear Mortgage Administration Ltd and Formula Mortgages Ltd as part of RAMP’s associate programme.

Oxygen was founded by David Matthews Hillyard and Sue Alexander in 2003 and offers a wide ranging lending facilities in both the mortgage and secured loans fields, exclusively through the intermediary community. Oxygen Mortgage Group is the first associate to join since Bill Warren was appointed as RAMP’s director of associate members in June.

David Matthews Hillyard commented: “RAMP’s proposition for associate members is first class. Apart from the obvious access to cutting edge products and services, its stance on compliance and its place in the modern mortgage market is very much in tune with our own. The development of Oxygen will be boosted by its association with RAMP and we look forward to working closely with Bill Warren and the rest of the RAMP team.”

Bill Warren said: “We are very pleased to welcome Oxygen Mortgage Group as an associate member. Oxygen represents the kind of company that we are keen to attract at RAMP. We have plenty of approaches from packagers but we are keen to ensure that only those who share our attitude towards improving standards in the packaging market and working harmoniously within the regulatory framework are considered for membership.”

John Rice, managing director of RAMP, said: “I am very pleased with the quality of members RAMP is attracting; I am confident the RAMP family will continue to grow in this complex market place.”
