Avant Money has confirmed its new mortgage products are now available to Irish customers, with fixed rate mortgages starting from 1.95%. 

The company, formerly known as Avantcard, is based in CarrickonShannon, Co. Leitrim. The group has a second office in Dublin, and has been providing credit cards and personal loans to Irish consumers for over twenty years. Avant Money is owned by Spanish banking group Bankinter, which also has operations in Portugal and Luxembourg.

Avant Money brings competition to the Irish mortgage market with 3, and 7 year fixed rate products.

Switchers, movers and first-time buyers can avail of these new products exclusively through a number of Ireland’s leading mortgage brokers.

Mortgages will be available to all customers, subject to the normal Central Bank of Ireland lending rules on loan-to-value and loan-to-income. Appointed mortgage brokers will be ready to guide customers on the range of Avant Money products and the various lending rules that apply. 

Chris Paul, CEO of Avant Money, said: “We are delighted to arrive as a new provider in the Irish mortgage market. We are confident that our products and rates will be appealing to Irish customers who have been under-served for far too long when it comes to their mortgages. Unlike other providers, we have shunned short-term gimmicks such as cashback offers in favour of products and rates geared towards providing true, quantifiable savings over the life of a typical mortgage. Supported by our parent, Bankinter, and building on our strong consumer finance heritage, we are looking forward to bringing better value to customers”.
