A broker is an agent or third party that acts as a mediator between credit applicants and lenders. Finding the right type of loan for the best rate can often be confusing and overwhelming, but a good broker should make it easier to get the right option for your financial needs.
A lender is a financial institution that loans funds directly to an individual or business, whilst a broker acts as a middleman and matches credit seekers with lenders.
Brokers typically work with a network of lenders to compare the different lending options available for each individual, to help them get the best deal for their specific needs.
A good broker can help make your finance journey quicker and easier. Finding the right loan can take time and many individuals are simply too busy to spend hours comparing the market for the best deal. However, a broker will do all the hard work for you.
Using a broker also removes the guesswork around which finance option is best for you. By discussing your requirements with an experienced finance specialist, you can feel confident you’re getting the right package for your needs.
Whilst there are plenty of honest brokers out there, sadly not all of them have your best interests at heart, and if you’re not careful you could find yourself paying more than you should.
To avoid being victimised or misled by an unscrupulous finance company, you should always choose a broker that is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and accredited under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.
A good finance broker should also be prepared to provide answers to any questions you have about their services and your credit options. If they aren’t willing to disclose certain information, you should think very carefully before entering an agreement with them.
