Dateline: Tuesday 22nd March 2016. Today was a double cause for celebration for Synergy as we held our latest induction programme to welcome yet a further three independent brokers into the Synergy broker network, because this time we crossed the borders of England for the first time when we staged what was our very first induction event in Scotland.

This induction was hosted by Lloyds Bank in their Edinburgh offices and of course we would like to sincerely thank Lloyds for their warm welcome, their helpfulness and hospitality.

How did the independent brokers find us?

The three new members, who had traveled from Scotland, the North East and even London to join us in the Scottish capital, were all well-established and successful independent brokers. Two of them had been referred to us by other independent broker colleagues who are already enjoying the multi-benefits of being part of the Synergy broker network. The other new network member had read in the media about the many advantages that Synergy has to offer and was keen to sample the franchise opportunities that we provide.

Without any shadow of doubt there are three major reasons why independent brokers join the Synergy Commercial Finance network. Number one is that without the daunting expense and effort required when pursuing the FCA direct authorisation route a broker can, thanks to our compliance capacity, quickly, easily and cost-effectively obtain full Authorisation enabling them to operate one hundred percent compliantly under the regulation of the FCA.

Equally importantly, however, when joining the Synergy broker network, whether they already have an established broker business or are an ex finance professional now entering the broker sector for the first time, they can continue to operate with their own identity and independence unaffected.

Reason number three, and to many independent brokers this is the most important reason of all, is the fact that as a member of the Synergy broker network they immediately gain direct access to what is recognised as the biggest and most comprehensive panel of funders available within the market. Our unmatchable funding panel currently numbers in excess of sixty lending sources, including a number of specialist and niche market funders meaning brokers are always guaranteed to quickly and competitively source the finance products they require for their clients.

Every month we are seeing still more brokers joining our broker network.
