Investment Sense enters the mortgage market by Anna Timms, Director

Investment Sense News

Anna Timms Independent Financial Adviser in NottinghamWe  are delighted to announce that Investment Sense has expanded our range of services and we can now provide independent advice on mortgages.

We felt that not being able to provide mortgage advice to our clients was leaving a gap in our range of services. This was something we were keen to address; however finding the right adviser to work with was not easy.

The mortgage market has changed significantly over the past few years; the combination of falling house prices, the general economy and stricter lending criteria has made it harder for people to get mortgages. Many of our clients are also self-employed or business owners who have found it particularly hard over the past few years to obtain a mortgage at a competitive rate of interest.

We wanted the adviser we work with to be experienced in this market and able to understand the particular needs of those who run their own businesses. It is also vital that the adviser we chose to work with can navigate their way round the new look mortgage market, providing solutions for our clients in a ‘can do’ way.
