Simon Allsop Head of Securitisation of Precise Mortgages commented: “We have already seen, from the first securitisation, that diversification of our funding base has allowed us to extend more loans to credit worthy individuals. To date we have lent over £500 million in the home owner and BTL spaces, yet there is undoubtedly still a significant need in the market and many consumers remain underserved. This is why we are undertaking a second securitisation, to further increase our lending ability and meet the ambitions of credit worthy homeowners and buy to let borrowers.”
