Gateshead, UK – 16th June 2016
Safeguard Financial Services help homeowners buy property worth over £1.629bn
Safeguard Financial Services specialise in new build mortgages, re-mortgages, buy to let mortgages, mortgage protection and other financial protection products. They advise on mortgages from a comprehensive range of providers, meaning they are not tied to any particular financial institution or bank, enabling them to advise on a wide range of financial products.
Safeguard have been operating in the Mortgage sector for over twenty years. They initially operated across North East England, the company then made the move to Safeguard House at Earls Court on Gateshead’s Team Valley Trading Estate during April 2015. This move to bigger premises provided the springboard for their rapid growth which is showing no signs of slowing. This has helped drive the company forward in line with its structured expansion plan into other areas of the UK.
The company now employs 43 staff, this includes fully accredited Mortgage Brokers, Protection Specialists, General Insurance Consultants, along with a highly qualified support team. The Safeguard team currently have over 324 years combined experience in the financial services sector.
The company currently have 18 trainees taking part in the Safeguard Academy programme which is being delivered by AB Education Consultants Limited. The programme is designed to provide a solid foundation for work within the financial services sector. It is anticipated that a large percentage of these trainees will successfully complete the course and find full time work within Safeguard Financial Services.
As part of their expansion strategy, Safeguard have also entered the Business Protection market, offering Relevant Life, Key Person Insurance, Dividend Insurance Plans and Corporate Debt Protection. This allows clients to draw on the experience of Safeguard’s specialist team of advisers to ensure that businesses have adequate protection for all eventualities.
This April saw the company celebrate their first anniversary in Safeguard House. Since 2010 Safeguard have processed mortgage applications totalling over £1.239bn on over £1.629bn of property, confirming Safeguard’s excellent track record as an unbiased mortgage broker specialising in new build, help to buy, re-mortgage and protection products.
Safeguard have developed a unique approach to helping people move onto the property ladder, consisting of client friendly operating hours that include evenings, weekends and bank holidays, ensuring that a full range of specialists are available when needed. This approach eradicates the problem of viewing a property and not being able to get mortgage advice until the next working day.
Wayne Curry, Managing Director at Safeguard Financial Services, said “I am extremely proud of how Safeguard has grown rapidly over recent years and of all the hard work the entire team has put in to get us where we are today. It is a huge achievement being one of the UK’s leading New Build Mortgage Specialists, I believe this is because we have so many years combined experience and expertise within this niche market. Our clients are at the heart of our business and we strive to deliver first class customer service.
