Company profile


It’s good to know Platform


Platform is the intermediary lender of The Co-­operative Bank p.l.c. Launched in February 2003, the company was created from the merger of Platform Home Loans and Verso, both Britannia subsidiaries. Following the merger of Britannia and The Co-­operative Bank on 1 August 2009, Platform now benefits from being part of a bigger organisation.


We offer a service that brings reassurance, strength and security to the intermediary market. As well as being a member of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, an associate member of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries and NACFB (National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers), we’re also on the mortgage panel of a number of major insurance companies, broker networks and estate agency chains.


Our products are distributed through mortgage advisers who must be authorised, either directly or via a principle with the Financial Conduct Authority. They must also hold a current Consumer Credit Licence and have Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Our commitments – developed by listening to you
To make sure we fully understood what was important to the market place, and how we could make our products stand out, we held ‘Platform Live’ – an event that enabled us to hear first hand what you want from lenders. We also carried out independent research, which contributed invaluable feedback and information to help us develop our commitments.
