Sesame named Best Network at Mortgage Strategy Awards 2012
→ Sesame has been named Best Network for the second successive year at the Mortgage Strategy Awards 2012, which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Sesame was recognised for its all round ability to serve adviser firms large and small in all areas of financial services.
John Cupis, Managing Director, Mortgages, said:
Sesame beat off tough competition from the likes of Openwork, Legal & General and Personal Touch to scoop this prestigious award. It is recognition for the valuable support provided by our experienced team, and testament to the strong proposition we have in the marketplace. We are making significant investments in services to enable our members to seize new opportunities and broaden their offering to clients.
In January Sesame Bankhall Group confirmed that it had strengthened its position as the UK's leading distributor of mortgages through intermediaries. The group delivered over £26.1bn of mortgage applications to lenders in 2011, a £1.9bn increase on the previous year. The group's market share also increased to 13.8 per cent of the overall UK mortgage market.
Last month Sesame also announced that in 2011 adviser productivity increased by an average of 20 per cent.
Over the last 12 months the group has launched Sesame Bankhall Valuation Services, Sesame Bankhall Legal Services, a new protection panel and also increased its mortgage exclusives by 90 per cent.
