Information for mortgage brokers

Please note this information is only intended for use by regulated finance brokers, who are authorised to provide mortgage advice.

How we help

We are part of a global financial services company and we have our own low-geared balance sheet*.


Lending since 1987, we make consistent, long-term decisions. We provide borrowers and brokers with uninterrupted support, even during difficult economic times.


In the UK, we are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority as a mortgage provider. Our FCA registration number is 313189.


* Please see our 2019 Financial Statement for details.

We appreciate that property is more than a financial transaction and see lending as a blend of art and science. We don’t adopt a tick box approach and don’t review a client’s credit scores per se. Instead, we look at the client’s entire finances.


Our approach is in the best interests of your clients – we are not just reviewing the collateral offered. We can also look at their investments and can help a client use Lombard lending, as well as borrowing against property, which could lead to better client outcomes over the long term.

We offer competitive interest rates and fee structures that depend on the nature of the transaction and risks involved in the financing.


Our margins are typically 2.5% for a residential, owner-occupier mortgage and 3% for a buy-to-let investment. We can offer both fixed rate and tracker facilities.


An arrangement fee is also payable on acceptance of any offer of mortgage we make to your clients. This fee depends on all the circumstances of the case, including any fee sharing arrangements. A typical arrangement fee would be 1% of the amount of the mortgage facility, with up to half of this paid to your firm as a retrocession. Any fees relating to a particular mortgage will be set out clearly for you and your clients.

It is important that borrowers consider the longer-term impact this has on their finances. For example, some may be borrowing to help the next generation onto the property ladder and need to understand how circumstances might dilute their efforts, and how they can mitigate the risks.

We provide holistic support for your clients that goes above and beyond the typical approach and explores various ‘what if’ scenarios.

It is important to note that your clients’ properties may be repossessed if they are unable to keep up repayments on their mortgages.

Listening to your needs

Nedbank Private Wealth is keen to hear from any mortgage broker who supports clients with over £1 million in liquid assets (or the equivalent in their local currency), and who advises clients on residential and investment purchases in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man, to invite them to participate in a survey about the UK mortgage market.


While the initial survey has already closed, brokers interested in participating in the research can still do so by getting in touch. We are looking to publish a report in February 2021.
