Welcome to the 2014 Mortgage Strategy Awards
Launched in September 2001 as the first weekly magazine for mortgage intermediaries, Mortgage Strategy quickly established itself as the number one source for breaking news, intelligent comment and informed analysis.
We charted the mortgage boom in the run up to 2007, the bust in 2008 and now, with the UK mortgage market finally finding its feet again, the recovery.
The last year has been a big one for the sector – the Funding for Lending Scheme launched in the middle of 2012 has led to a genuine boost in mortgage lending in 2013.
Likewise the Help to Buy scheme, which was launched by the Government in the 2013 Budget, has provided the means for thousands of people to finally get on the housing ladder.
This renewed consumer confidence has had a knock-on effect on the intermediary sector and the industry's most forward thinking firms are working hard to ensure they thrive and prosper as the market recovers.
Now in its 12th year, the Mortgage Strategy Awards celebrates the intermediary mortgage market's triumphs and successes and is the definitive bench mark by which the industry measures itself.
