Freedom Finance plans to expand

Freedom Finance says it is planning a major expansion of its mortgage broking operation to provide extended national coverage by the end of the year.

New business is generated via Freedom Finance’s lead generation activities and the company sources mortgage products from the whole of the market including prime, sub-prime and buy-to-let deals.

The company also advises on a full range of mortgage related insurance products.

Andrew Bradbury, head of mortgage sales at Freedom Finance, says: “Freedom Finance is best known as a loans broker and most people are unaware that we also have a growing mortgage broking business.

“We aim to provide clients with a bespoke mortgage and insurance solution to meet their needs which, in many instances, involves a face-to-face meeting with one of our regionally based advisers.

“We are aiming to significantly grow the business during 2007 and beyond and are always interested to talk to motivated individuals who would like to be part of a dynamic and rapidly expanding team.”
