“Mortgages for Business no longer represents what we do — we do mortgages for everybody!”
– Gavin Richardson, managing director of Mortgage Finance Brokers
Mortgages for Business is rebranding. The buy-to-let intermediary, which was founded in 1990, will now be known as Mortgage Finance Brokers.
The firm says its name change reflects the fact that commercial mortgages now make up a small proportion of the business.
As part of the rebrand, it has relaunched its website and is retaining the acronym ‘MFB’ as well as its hexagonal logo.
Gavin Richardson, managing director of Mortgage Finance Brokers, said: “Over the last 32 years we have evolved to do so much more than our ‘old name’ suggests. Mortgages for Business no longer represents what we do — we do mortgages for everybody!
“We started out focusing on commercial mortgages but now we write mortgages for every type of client from buy-to-lets for individuals as well as limited and trading companies, to short term and refurbishment finance via development loans, residential owner-occupiers — and of course all types of commercial finance.
“Thirty years ago, we weren’t providing mortgages for HMOs, MUFBs, vanilla buy-to-let, holiday lets, and student accommodation or residential mortgages for our clients either. The property finance sector has evolved since the early nineties and our company has, too. We want our name to reflect that.
”We are really excited to see how both these enhancements and our new proposition add even more value to our clients, old and new.
“To an extent, this exercise reflects our belief in the sector. There’s been a lot of challenges for our clients and peers over the past few years and landlords are facing some headwinds, but we wouldn’t be investing in the brand, enhancing our service proposition, and planning for the next 30 years if we didn’t believe in the sector.”
