To focus on the residential mortgage market in the Netherlands

March 7, 2017: As part of its plans to grow its business in the Netherlands, risk and due diligence expert Clayton Euro Risk has announced a strategic alliance with The Dutch Mortgage Consultants (TDMC). The move will support Clayton Euro Risk’s strategic focus on the residential mortgage market in the Netherlands.

Clayton Euro Risk is Europe’s leading provider of risk analysis on mortgage and asset finance. The firm believes that its expertise and reach will be enhanced by TDMC’s substantial knowledge of the Dutch mortgage market, credit, regulations and conditions to provide value and solutions which will be market-leading.

From the start of January 2017, Clayton Euro Risk’s and TDMC’s teams have worked together closely to establish the relationship. The first project for a Dutch client has already started.

Simon Collingridge, strategic delivery director, Clayton Euro Risk, said, “It is important for our clients that we have local presence in the Dutch mortgage market. We believe that by combining our capabilities, expertise and resources with those of TDMC, we’ll gain an even deeper understanding of the risks and opportunities faced by mortgage players and funders in the Netherlands. We can then deliver solutions tailored to those needs whether in support of origination, servicing, portfolio sale, acquisition or securitisation. Working with TDMC will ensure that we have people with real, practical experience of all aspects of Dutch mortgages supporting our delivery of those solutions. This, we believe, will bring a unique and invaluable offering to what is a dynamic mortgage market.”

In a press release, Jaap van Raak and Michel van der Sluis, partners of TDMC, said: “Working with Clayton Euro Risk will give us a unique opportunity to be their local presence in the Netherlands mortgage market and to add real value to their Dutch clients.”
