About Us.

Our Story

Bright Box Financial Services has been set up to provide expert advice to our clients in the world of securing mortgages and protection policies. But more importantly to offer solutions in complicated situations when people have found it difficult to achieve the end result.

With experience of over 20 years in the financial services industry between us, our clients will benefit from accurate and clear advice on the whole of the market, in an efficient and pro-active manner, to ensure that our clients are taking advantage of the best deals possible across a choice of 1000’s of products.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, we will make sure that you understand every aspect of our recommendations and the process involved.

Our Purpose

We often come across people who feel that they can’t secure mortgages or insurance for various reasons such as just starting off in their own business venture, ill-health, beginning a new fixed-term contract with a different employer, going on maternity leave or maybe even having problems with the type of property that you’re buying.

Our extensive knowledge of the products in the market through great relationships with lenders and the vast range of products available to us, we feel as though we can find the solutions needed to achieve your objectives by being creative and thinking outside of the box.

Our aim is to offer our services to all areas of the market, by blending elements of the traditional face to face and relationship qualities of mortgage broking with the current era of technology and the benefits that it brings. We want to eradicate the formalities and stresses of financing a property or arranging insurances by making the process as seamless as possible to improve your experience.

Our Future

We’re not a transactional company, we’re a relationship based one. Whether it’s your first jump to getting on the property ladder or looking to expand your portfolio, we want to work with you every step of the way. Keeping in touch with our existing clients and carrying out reviews throughout the years is an integral part to our business.

Our business is a referral led one, where over 70% of our new clients have been recommended to us by the existing ones. We want to make sure that every conversation about mortgages and insurances you have with friends, family and colleagues involves our names. The only way that you would do that is by finding the experience with Bright Box a positive one.

Whilst Bright Box Financial Services has been established purely for mortgage and insurance advice, our directors have a vast range of knowledge across different industries. If your requirements cover more than one area, then we can certainly put you in touch with one another to tailor your advice.

We ensure that all of our team can provide you with the service and professionalism that you need to deliver the results.

Over this period, he has worked with clients over a vast range of sectors to ensure that everyone has a great experience from start to finish with his friendly and professional approach.
