Competition is intensifying in the UK mortgage market as one lender cut rates below 1 per cent and another improved the terms for self-employed borrowers, in a sign of growing confidence in the economy and housing market. Santander on Thursday told mortgage brokers that when assessing the mortgage application of a self-employed borrower it would set aside the 2020-21 accounting period if their business had been adversely affected by the coronavirus crisis. Instead, Santander will from Monday base its assessment on income in the two tax years prior to the pandemic.
Spanish bank Santander SA's asset management arm is close to launching a new fund that will allow clients to invest in trade finance receivables, according to three sources familiar with the plans. The fund - aimed at institutional and accredited investors - will primarily buy assets created by the banking group's trade finance business in transactions with its large corporate clients, the sources said. Trade and supply chain finance, where lenders pay a company's suppliers on the company's behalf in exchange for a fee and repayment at a later date, has boomed over the past year amid the coronavirus pandemic.
