The new website includes an online affordability calculator, an enhanced product search tool and a quick quote option for short-term loans.
The website’s new criteria search includes a live API connection with Knowledge Bank, in conjunction with Dock9.
Jon Hall, managing director at Masthaven (pictured above), said: “We recognise the power of technology and will continue to invest in tools that simplify and speed up the end-to-end loan process wherever possible.
“The balance of tech and the human element of any loan application is invaluable to us.
“The new intermediary website and API connection with Knowledge Bank exist to improve and enhance broker workloads, freeing up additional time to support clients with face-to-face interaction when needed.

“This is just one step we’re taking this year to emphasise that we’re a digitally focused lender with a human approach to lending decisions and will fully support brokers at every touchpoint.”
Nicola Firth, CEO and founder of Knowledge Bank, added: “As the financial services sector continues to take advantage of the power of API connections, we are delighted to have achieved this innovative and multi-lending type live integration with Masthaven.
“The desire to demystify the world of specialist lending is something that we and the bank share and the transparency and ease [by] which brokers can [now find] criteria information on [its] website will save a huge amount of time when trying to place a case with the bank.
“In addition, Masthaven now [has] a single point of entry to keep [its] website up to date as well as the criteria information [it provides] to networks, clubs and brokers via our core system.”
This comes after Masthaven recently launched its API connection with Specialist Mortgage Group (SMG).
SMG brokers now have access to near-instant DIP responses on the specialist bank’s second charge mortgage range.
Masthaven plans to roll out its API connection to more broker firms this year.
