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
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.
These are the reasons why it’s good to know Platform.
