Openwork, one of the UK’s largest financial advice networks, has won the prestigious Best Network 300+ ARs award for the third time in a row at last night’s Mortgage Strategy awards ceremony.
The awards were announced at a glittering ceremony held in London's Grosvenor House Hotel, with Openwork winning from a shortlist including Intrinsic, PRIMIS and Sesame.
John Cupis, Openwork's Mortgage Director, said: "This is a fantastic endorsement of the strength of our proposition and the hard work of our advisers, their support teams and our staff in delivering award-winning advice and service to clients.
“We have had another outstanding year for our mortgage proposition and I am delighted this has been recognised by a third consecutive win. In 2018 – the year where we became independent from Zurich for the first time - we delivered £16 billion of lending and a fifth consecutive year of 20% growth.
“We also improved the personalised protection risk report we use in our mortgage advice process, to include the property risks addressed through buildings and contents insurance, and became the first UK network to introduce mortgage criteria search, through our partnership with Criteria Hub."
