About the Growth Hub

Welcome to the Hub, a central resource for the Growth Series, to help you grow your business.

Many brokers we work with tell us that being a broker is what they’re good at, but they need help in other areas. They lack the time to get the specialised knowledge they feel they need to be successful in running their business in all kinds of areas, including marketing and new technology.

Who we are

Our core team consists of sales and marketing colleagues at Accord and YBS Group, working closely with ClientsFirst, a professional services agency that work with many successful mortgage broker firms. We invite guest experts to contribute in specialist areas, including many names from the mortgage industry you’ll be familiar with.

Between us, we have a good understanding of the many ongoing challenges brokers face and in particular how you can go about ensuring there is a constant supply of fresh enquiries into your business.

What we offer

The series is designed to provide you with quick, easily applied actions that will make a real difference, without taking hours of your time.

Compiled by our own internal specialists and the best external industry experts in a range of fields, you’ll find a range of

  • Blogs

The aim behind all these communications is to help you grow your business speedily and effectively.

The series has been a huge success with brokers and we’re continually adding new resources to expand its scope - or even grow our own offering!

Thanks to Accord for doing the Growth Series. I think you've done a phenomenal job covering a lot of areas that we wouldn't have necessarily considered. So, great foresight and great support! ”

Danny Belton, Head of Lender Relationships, L&G Mortgage Club

We have found the Growth Series really useful. It is great to see a lender looking to help Brokers with the everyday aspects of growing their businesses rather than focussing on ‘Correct Submission sheet’ type issues which serve to help the lender more than the Broker. ”

Jonathon Evans - Mortgage Advisor - Kevin Ford & Co Ltd

The topic of Professional Indemnity Insurance is being raised in more and more conversations with us currently, including spiralling costs, increases in excesses and underwriters leaving the market. Making sure your business is ready for any future challenges will be key and Accord’s “5 tips for managing the cost of professional indemnity insurance for brokers” is relevant and very sensible advice. ”
