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. ”
