WORKERS at a Crossflatts company have enjoyed a double celebration.

They took part in Computershare Day, held globally to mark the success of the financial services giant.

And they’ve also been celebrating their first anniversary as employees of Computershare Loan Services, which was appointed by the Government last year to service the mortgages of UK Asset Resolution (UKAR).

“Over the past year our colleagues in Crossflatts have played a vital role in attracting new business and generating further success for the company,” said chief executive officer, Andrew Jones.

“We are delighted to have been able to provide investment and high-quality jobs to the community around us, so I hope everyone enjoys commemorating the milestone of a year working together!

“Computershare Day also enables us to join together with 16,000 employees around the world to celebrate the benefits of a career with a leading international company which prides itself on a culture of hard work, fairness, honesty, diversity – and fun!”

The firm was first listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in May, 1994.

It now works with more than 16,000 organisations and has employees in 21 countries.

In the UK, it manages over £67 billion of assets – more than half of all the country’s outsourced mortgages.

As well as being appointed last year to administer the mortgages of UKAR – which had taken over parts of Bradford & Bingley and Northern Rock at the height of the financial crisis – the company has also been selected by Sainsbury’s Bank as its mortgage servicing partner.

In addition, a seven-year deal has been struck with Vida Homeloans, a new specialist lender, to administer its portfolio.

“We help mortgage lenders optimise the performance of their portfolios and support hundreds of thousands of borrowers throughout the lifecycle of every loan,” added Mr Jones.

“Our expertise, experience and understanding of large volumes of complex financial data also help us provide insight and services to mortgage providers, investors and real estate professionals.”

Computershare Loan Services is also helping young people to learn money management skills.

Last year it donated £20,000 to The Money Charity to fund special workshops in the north of England.
