Now working together with such a respected packager as Positive Lending, we can offer a large amount of experience and knowledge of a wide range of lending criteria and circumstances. This will help to ensure that everyone - especially people new to bridging loans - can be confident that they are getting the best deal and the best advice."

"The white label packaging arrangement that we have with them has helped us to take more control of our enquiries. It makes sense for a lender to incentivise introducers to place a clear exit strategy from the onset, so it's good to see someone doing it.
