First Complete outstrips market with 22% growth in Q1 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 06 May 2015

First Complete mortgage completions for quarter one 2015 are up 22% on the same quarter last year.  This completely bucks the trend for the market as a whole as the CML reports that mortgage completions across the market dropped by three per cent in Q1.

The upward trend looks to be continuing into the second quarter too as First Complete had its most successful day in the company’s history on the last day of April, completing 214 mortgage cases and 290 life cases in a single day, more than 25% up on an average day.

This builds on First Complete’s results for 2014, where mortgage completions for the year increased by 69%, compared to 17% across the market as reported by the CML.

Toni Smith, sales operations director for First Complete says: “The results achieved by First Complete brokers continue to significantly exceed those of the market as a whole.  With full credit to our ARs, mortgage and protection volumes have not slowed in the run up to the election and we expect the second half of the year to exceed the first, so we are prepared for some more record breaking months to come.”
