Steve Olejnik, managing director at Mortgages for Business, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Berkeley Alexander.

“We offer a broad range of mortgages, so we needed a provider with an extensive appetite and an established reputation for expertise in non-standard and landlords’ GI in particular.”

Mark Hutchings, managing director at Berkeley Alexander, added: “We have a solid reputation for the strength of our insurer relationships, which is never so important as during a hard market when premiums typically rise across most product lines.

“Providers like us with the expertise and knowledge of the risks involved can leverage those insurer relationships to ensure we get the most favourable terms available to us.

“Being able to combine efficient online distribution with the traditional approach of speaking directly to insurers ensures we get the right cover for even the most complex of risks.”
