mortgage handshake

Argenta, BNP Paribas Cardif and Calcasa together strengthen mortgage market

February 7, 2023

Since the beginning of 2022, advisers applying for Argenta mortgages have the possibility to quickly and easily apply for the BNP Paribas Cardif Suretyship. The two parties will also continue their partnership in 2023, adding a free desktop valuation from Calcasa for customers applying for an Argenta mortgage with a Suretyship from BNP Paribas Cardif until 1 May to make the mortgage process even more efficient.

The three parties thus strengthen the mortgage market together, thanks to BNP Paribas Cardif in The Netherlands years of experience with Suretyships combined with Argenta’s strong market position and Calcasa’s independent and fast desktop valuation.

Last year, Argenta bank has included BNP Paribas Cardif Suretyships in its mortgage process. This allows an adviser to arrange a Suretyship for customers taking out the Argenta mortgage easily, quickly and at a competitive rate. The Suretyship offers security and makes purchasing a home easier.

Together, the parties want to unburden the customer journey even further. Among other things, they do this by offering simple products and making the processes more efficient. This step will speed up the mortgage process even more by offering Calcasa’s desktop valuation online, so that the customer receives the valuation within four hours. Now these three parties have jointly launched a campaign to make these
simple processes even more prominent to and experienced by customers and advisers.

“Calcasa has developed the desktop valuation to provide consumers with a quick and reliable valuation.
A fully digital process for advisor and customer where the mortgage lender ultimately uses source data is
where we are heading in the market. The deployment of the desktop valuation in the adviser’s process
leads to time savings and hence faster clarity. The initiative with BNP Paribas Cardif and Argenta is a nice
collaboration in the chain and makes it even easier for the advisor and the customer”
Tijs Pellemans,General Director Calcasa.

“Argenta is a responsible, simple and price-conscious bank and continues to work on that. This promotion
of a free desktop valuation together with BNP Paribas Cardif and Calcasa fits our character perfectly. It
also shows how we can mean even more to customers and advisers through cooperation. In this way, we
want to continue to grow healthily in the Netherlands in the coming years, including productive cooperation
with our partners in the mortgage chain.”
Sander Blommaert, CEO Argenta Netherlands

“As the expert in Suretyships, BNP Paribas Cardif chooses to cooperate with partners in the mortgage
chain. The addition of Calcasa’s desktop valuation to the mortgage process with Argenta, fits seamlessly
with our partner strategy and makes insurance simple and therefore more accessible.
