The Bank of Ireland has entered into a strategic partnership with Freedom Finance.
The partnership will take advantage of Freedom Finance's in-house lending decisioning and technology platform to support the bank's loan customers.
Bank of Ireland customers will also have access to Freedom Finance's UK-based contact centre.

“As the financial industry undergoes rapid technological and regulatory change, our partnership with Freedom will deliver innovative lending through a disruptive proposition.
“Working together, we will be even stronger in finding customers the best possible loan and rate, while providing market-leading service standards.”
Michael George Davidson, director of business development at Freedom Finance, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Bank of Ireland at this exciting time.
“Being able to work closely together to engineer a solution that supports thousands of customers every month is testimony to the values of both brands.”
