Acre, the one-click mortgage intermediaries platform, today announces that Cornerstone Finance is the latest big broker to go live with its platform to manage its entire mortgage process end-to-end. Cardiff-based Cornerstone Finance will digitally transform the way they do business and serve clients thanks to Acre’s innovative technology.
As one of the UK’s largest broker networks, Cornerstone Finance Group’s network handles a large and complex caseload of mortgage and protection advice. Acre’s platform will help the firm to streamline the management of the business by bringing elements such as a standard advice process, compliance, broker communications, management of AR’s, reporting, accounting, and regulatory filings all into one central place. This seamless, tech-led approach means that Cornerstone Finance Group’s brokers can save significant admin time on fact finds, paperwork and re-keying case data and more time helping clients to source and close the best deals.
Another deciding factor in choosing Acre was the platform’s ability to handle all of Cornerstone’s compliance needs for the 100-strong network of financial advisors. The digital intermediaries platform reduces the network’s risk by providing integrated workflows that simplify the back-and-forth between case checkers and advisors. Its unchangeable action records that record the history and source of each data point securely make compliance a simpler, easier part of Cornerstone Finance’s business. Templated disclosure and reasons-why documents are automatically generated and kept in sync with the case record, removing a common point of failure and helping ensure the best customer outcomes.
Michael Wayman, CEO of Cornerstone Finance Group said: “We’ve built our business on delivering a great service to both our Appointed Representatives and their clients, providing fast and friendly advice and speedy lending decisions. Adopting Acre’s platform means we can take a modern, tech-driven approach that represents the future of our industry.
