UK challenger bank, Gatehouse Bank, today announced the formal launch of its Shariah-compliant home finance platform, based on the state-of-the-art ‘Apprivo2’ technology developed by financial services software provider, BEP Systems.
Using cloud-based, mobile-ready technology, the bespoke case management platform will enable intermediaries to effortlessly process home finance and buy-to-let applications from enquiry through to completion.
The platform will be supported by a team of specialists based at Gatehouse Bank’s recently opened Customer Service Centre in Milton Keynes.
The bank currently offers buy-to-let finance and plans to roll out Shariah-compliant home owner finance through selected brokers in the near future. Home finance products, or ‘Home Purchase Plans’, are the Shariah-compliant alternative to mortgages.
