What if my client cannot repay the loan?

If your client is unable to pay back the loan and cannot redeem their asset, borro will manage the resale and settle the loan on their behalf. borro does not charge any penalty fees and has a fiduciary duty to obtain the best price for the asset. All assets are sold through the UK’s major auction houses and any surplus from the sale after our recovery costs will be returned directly to the client. This will not affect the 7.5% commission earned by the introducer at any stage.

How is borro regulated?

borro is regulated by the OFT, and has a Consumer Credit License (No. 620035). We are also a part of the Consumer Credit Trade Association. borro are not involved in any financial activities that require FSA regulation.

How time consuming will this be for me?

Once you have explained the service to the client, all you need to do is refer the client by giving us a call, or filling in a quick application form via your online account. borro will then:

• manage all communication with the client once you have initiated a case • manage on-going client relationships and accounts

• manage logistics of receiving assets and shipping them back to clients • pay for the upfront costs of transporting the assets

What tools are there to help me sell & how can I track my cases?

borro will provide you with an introducer pack that includes brochures, AIP forms and PowerPoint presentations containing both general and client targeted information. These can be found online via your online account, at

www.borro.com/introducer/login which you can sign-up and log into, to manage your cases and loans and track the commission on your introductions.

How will my commission be paid?

All commissions generated by clients acquired using your network and serviced by borro will be paid on a monthly basis. Introducer commissions will be paid in two stages. Firstly, 50% of the commission if and when the loan passes through the 15 days ‘right to cancel’ window under the Financial Services (Distant Marketing) Regulations 2004. If the loan does not reach 15 days no commission will be paid. Secondly, 50% of the commission if and when the loan enters the fourth month of the term. If the loan does not reach the fourth month, this part of the commission will not be paid. Commissions are based on a percentage of the loan value, and will be paid according to the following commercial structure:
