customers a modern take on the traditional banking model. The bank is
committed to making it more straightforward for credit-worthy small

Bank. It is refreshing in the current market to have a strong
relationship such as the one we have with Shawbrook who are continuously

our customers a streamline and efficient mortgage process and at the
same time reward our introducers for choosing Charleston Financial to
package their Shawbrook cases.”

market expertise. For our brokers and for Shawbrook, efficiency is key

to be able to reward Charleston Financial as one of the highest
performers. We remain committed to working with all of our brokers and
