  1. FSMA recognition

Hypotheek.winkel, company number 0474.087.795, is recognised by the FSMA for home loans, insurance and consumer loans under FSMA number 061433. Hypotheek.winkel collaborates with a network of FSMA-approved mortgage brokers, consumer credit brokers and insurance sub-agents.

Because of its status, hypotheek.winkel is not tied to a financial institution and can therefore search independently for the best solutions for you.

Having regard to the commitment between the FSMA and hypotheek.winkel, the executive committee of the FSMA has subsequently recognised hypotheek.winkel BVBA as a training provider of continuing education for professionals in home loans and insurance. This recognition can be found under accreditation numbers 500187 H (Home loans) and 500187 A (Insurance) on the FSMA’s website.
