Paul was recently recognised by Spears magazine as one of London’s top 5 property financiers and will be using his expertise and contacts to benefit the island.

We have exclusive arrangements in place to assist local residents – from business funding to first time buyers and later life lending. Supported by a building society, we will lend to first time buyers up to 95% of the purchase price with additional security. This will enable those that wish to buy for the first time through the family mortgage to do so.

Later Life lending is aimed at lending to those aged 65-89 that wish to release funds for a variety of purposes. We will start with local market property.

Mark Bogard, CEO of the Family Building Society, said, “We are very excited to be supporting Paul and his business by making available our products and expertise to benefit islanders.”

Toby Howell, founding partner, commented, “We are looking forward to meeting and helping local businesses in ways that banks in the recent past haven’t been able to.”
