Further endorsement for our financial regulation compliance and unbeatable broker support

It is no coincidence that the number of enquiries we are constantly receiving from established commercial finance brokers, as well as from highly qualified finance professions who are contemplating entering the broker sector, continues to rise month on month.  Even more satisfying is the fact that a high percentage of people making these enquiries are sufficiently impressed by our financial regulation compliance facility and our unmatched level of broker support that they are keen to join the growing number of Synergy franchisees.  Last week we were delighted to welcome our newest network member when Chris Strahan undertook his induction.

Chris’ induction was in fact another significant landmark in the Synergy success story. He was the very first franchisee to have an induction in our spanking new Blackburn headquarters offices.

In so many ways Chris Strahan is typical of the high calibre of commercial finance professionals now being attracted to the Synergy support promise.  As a newly established broker, but with an impressive background in the banking sector, Chris has thoroughly researched the commercial finance market and the different opportunities available.  He unhesitatingly decided that the Synergy proposition provided all the support and the opportunities that he was looking for.

Chris’new commercial finance broker business is called Mosaic Advisory and he is based in Pilling near to the Fylde coast in Lancashire.  Prior to this exciting development however, he is able to boast a most impressive record that spans over 30-years within the banking sector, including experience across the commercial and corporate marketplace that covers industrial and manufacturing businesses, mergers and acquisitions, commercial property, residential letting portfolios and construction – at NatWest, Yorkshire Bank and Handelsbanken where he was a branch manager.

Now he firmly believes that this extensive experience provides the perfect foundation on which to establish his own independent broker business.

As a highly experienced finance professional Chris is fully aware of the stringent financial regulation legislation that is now in place.  In particular he understands the need for full FCA compliance in order to grow his new business.

Having investigated the Regulator’s direct authorisation costs and complex procedures, he recognised that as a Synergy franchisee operating as an Appointed Representative, he could be fully compliant within a very short space of time and that we also ensure he continues to meet every one of his regulatory responsibilities.

The other major reassurance was our unique ‘Broker in a Box’ support package.  

This exclusive programme ensures that every broker is fully supported day-in, day-out with an exceptional level of back up and assistance that helps businesses to develop and prosper.

Underpinning this support package is the unrivalled Synergy funders panel, now numbering in excess of 200 lending sources, including high street and specialist market lenders that guarantee Synergy brokers can always structure the most appropriate and competitive finance solutions for their clients.

We’re delighted to welcome Chris into the Synergy network.  If you would like to discover more about our support package that includes financial regulation compliance please do not hesitate to contact us.  You can call us on 01904 481 786.
