SLM in partnership with Personal Touch

The partnership deal will mean a wider selection of standard and exclusive mortgage deals for PTI’s direct sales force and free MCCB membership.

Other benefits include free mortgage sourcing system (Mortgage 2000), professional indemnity insurance, back office mortgage tracking, and qualified mortgage leads.

Steve Scholes, Director of Scottish Life Mortgages, said, "I am delighted to announce our new association with PTI, which is part of our ongoing strategic growth plan. The benefits of our technology will no doubt be of great advantage to their direct sales force. Technology has become increasingly important in our market and SLM will develop this in order to build other quality business partnerships in the future. "

Martin Wilson, chief executive of PTI, said: "We will now have one of the largest selection of mortgages available through one source, probably the largest packaging facility and certainly the largest range of financial services and general insurance products under one roof."
