Al Rayan Bank has partnered with mortgage broker Alexander Hall.
Alexander Hall — the sister company of Foxtons estate agents — has been added to the bank’s panel of mortgage brokers and will aim to increase awareness of Al Rayan’s home finance proposition.
The mortgage broker will refer UK domestic Islamic home finance enquiries, as well as enquiries from expats in Gulf Cooperation Council countries who are looking to invest in the UK property market from overseas.
“[Alexander Hall’s] 25 years of experience in the sector and position as one of the top mortgage brokers in the UK means we’re looking forward to fostering this relationship, and increasing awareness of Islamic home finance to mainstream audiences in both the UK and abroad,” said Maisam Fazal, chief commercial officer at Al Rayan Bank (pictured above).
Greg Cunnington, director of lender relationships and new homes at Alexander Hall, added: “One of our responsibilities is to search the market and provide the widest choice of providers as possible for our clients, and it is important to us that we are able to source suitable options for all of them.”
