Hive Financial, a newly-regulated broker focusing on residential and commercial funding, have become the latest company to be granted strategic broker partner status by Shawbrook Bank.
Jackie Houguez-Simmons and Steven Drake discuss:
“Steven and I have both come from master brokers, so are known in the industry and to Shawbrook. As a relatively new FCA regulated entity, Shawbrook’s loyalty and support throughout the process cannot not be underestimated. That we now have Strategic Partner status is very much a joint achievement between our companies.
"Shawbrook’s professionalism and efficiency is key to the service we are able to offer our clients. TCF is a core value within Hive’s business model, both for customers and staff. It is important to work and gain the trust of our clients to get an honest and detailed overview of what they are trying to achieve, thereby allowing us to complete a high proportion of the propositions put to us. We are clear and upfront about the options available to clients, and they value our honesty.
Being made a Strategic Partner of Shawbrook Bank, in recognition of the quality of work that we provide, is something that we are extremely proud of here at Hive Financial.”
Daryl Norkett, Regional Development Manager at Shawbrook Commercial Mortgages adds:
“Having been experienced commercial brokers themselves, Jackie and Steven were in a perfect position to set up Hive Finance in late 2015. It’s been a privilege to be a part of the ‘Hive story’ as the brokerage has gone from strength to strength and added some impressive members to the team along the way. It’s a pleasure to recognise this success by welcoming Hive to the Strategic Partner pride at Shawbrook.
"The customer focused values of Shawbrook and Hive are well aligned and we look forward to continuing to grow together over the coming years by supporting many more clients to meet their property and business goals.”
