The Free Money Advice Service has been setup by the government to provide impartial advice on most financial matters but is particularly good on Equity Release. 

Equity Release is a minefield but a necessary minefield! Get it right and older people can raise money on their property - potentially allowing them to afford to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. Get it wrong and they can accumulate an enormous debt and effectively disinherit their children as the finance company claims their home in order to repay the accumulated loan when they die. The link below may help you decide whether this might be a useful route to go down. However just as importantly consider using a financial adviser.
This is a simple AgeUK Equity Release calculator which will help you find out how much an equity release loan would allow you to raise on your house.

Plutus Wealth Management

Bridewell Gate, 9 Bridewell Pl, London EC4V 6AW, UK – 020 7871 5200

I'm pleased to have got involved with a professional company like Plutus. Georgina & Ross have been excellent.

I cannot speak highly enough of Plutus Wealth Management and in particular Georgina Partridge. I have been a client with them for several years and their personal approach definitely separates them from their competition. They are a dynamic and engaging team with a strong focus on their purpose, which has always made me feel that I’m in very safe hands. Georgina constantly takes the time to understand my financial goals from a holistic perspective which we regularly review together, and it’s her honesty, professionalism and objectivity that I truly value and trust. I have recommended friends and colleagues to speak to Plutus about any of their financial concerns or objectives and I have no hesitation in continuing to do so. Fantastic service from a fantastic team!


1st Floor, 20 Little Britain, London EC1A 7DH, UK – 020 7065 2740

I have been with Money Wise for many years and would not hesitate to recommend them. They are professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. They deal with my Pension, Investments and ISAs and I feel confident with their advice and recommendations. In addition they are very approachable and they take a personal interest. Perhaps the strongest recommendation I have is the trust I have with them.

Have been a customer with MONEYWISE for some months now and have found them very helpful, always have my interests at heart. The Advisor and the other staff have very valuable and detailed knowledge and all my pension plans were fashioned to suit me and everything about me. I would recommend MONEYWISE to anyone thinking about their financial position and in need of advice. Thanks

Crowd Funding and Business Loans

365 Business Finance

13-15 Rosemont Rd, London NW3 6NG, UK – 020 7100 0365

Simple yet clever product which is perfect for business owners, like myself, who have a very seasonal business. The product puts no strain on my cash flow during my slow period. Will continue to use them and recommend my account manager, Matt Sparrow.

Would recommend these guys to business owners. Helped me with my cash flow quickly and efficiently. Keffey looked after my account - easy and honest to deal with. Would definitely use them again.

Business Expert Invoice Discounting and Factoring

71-75 Shelton St, London WC2H 9JQ, UK – 0800 024 2451

Business Expert's website is incredibly easy to use and I quickly found the funding options best suited to my business. With expert guidance from their team, I managed to secure a great deal.

Great platform! Works better than expected.

Virgin Start Up Ltd

66 Porchester Rd, London W2 6ET, UK – 020 7313 2002

Start up loans for pre start or up to two years old, backed by gov funding. The staff are fast, friendly and know their stuff. It is easy to speak to a local contact without having your arm twisted. The local contact in North Yorkshire is based in Scatborough but travels to meet people in Hull and York at least monthly they also help people starting a business who do not need finance, Yorkshire in Business.

I have been working with Virgin StartUp for a fair years now and it has been great. Great opportunities. They made the process of applying for a Virgin Start Up Loan very early on a non daunting process and the follow on support with matching me with a suited Mentor at that time was and has been invaluable. Always willing to offer information and with their support, advice and suggestions it has helped grow my business immensely. The Virgin Start Up team are creative, sharp, having the ability to help nurture and see potential in new fresh ideas. I would recommend to anyone thinking about getting in touch to apply for funding, not to think of reason why they can't; but reason why they can and should: to just do it; you have nothing much to loose and everything to gain!

Good bank


Adam & Co plc

6 Adelaide St, London WC2N 4HZ, UK – 020 7839 4615

The service I have received from Adam and Co has been exemplary, in my opinion every company should take note and follow suit. Mary in the 24 hour call centre has gone above and beyond to help my elderly mother. They are patient, kind and have worked extremely hard to find a solution to our issue. I cannot express my thanks enough to her for her outstanding customer service. In this day and age it is rare for such a huge company to treat their customers with such a personal service. When I have enough money to bank privately I will be going straight to them with all my money.

The new modern and amazing style NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY here in Hampstead is just fantastic. STAFF as ever are helpful friendly and extremely professional in assisting customer's with anything and everything.

Decent, competent, not over-or-under trained, welcoming and helpful staff. A new, pleasant layout... much more agreeable than formerly.

Mortgage Brokers

Trinity Financial

4th Floor, 1 Lumley St, Mayfair, London W1K 6TT, UK – 020 7016 0790

Oliver has been absolutely fantastic all the way through the process. He’s extremely knowledgeable, helpful and super-efficient. I actually began with another broker but switched after they never got back to me even after repeated phone calls. I couldn’t have been any more impressed with Oliver and Trinity Financial.

Absolutely outstanding service from a team of consummate professionals. I have dealt with Trinity on several occasions and their honest advice and military efficiency are invaluable. They are great with client communication and management, keeping you fully informed and up to date throughout the application and approval process. I would use them again and again - cannot recommend Trinity highly enough.

Alexander Hall West End Mortgage Broker HQ

137-144 High Holborn, London WC1V 6PL, UK – 0800 038 3736

Outstanding service!! Buying a house can be a long and stressful process and my experience with Alexander Hall made everything so much easier. I worked with Joseph Fennelly who was incredible from start to finish. He got me a great deal and answered all of my questions so quickly. I came to Alexander Hall on a friend's recommendation and I can see now why she was raving about them. Highly recommended and really reasonable prices.

Could not recommend Graeme Lockwood more. He got us an excellent BTL product (which no other brokers could source), which is exactly what we wanted. Agree with other comments here that he really fights for you. He was always extremely responsive and helped us achieve a remortgage on a very tight timetable.


12 Hay Hill, Mayfair, London W1J 8NR, UK – 020 3758 9393

Professional brokers, quick turn around, extremely impressed with the level of service received, thank you

An extremely professional process and team - recommend highly


Alexander Hall Clerkenwell Mortgage Broker

50-54 Clerkenwell Rd, Clerkenwell, London EC1M 5PS, UK – 0800 038 3736

It felt as though my mortgage arrangements were settled in moments. Will and the team were infinitely helpful, supportive, and clear. I know nothing whatever about mortgages, but the options were laid out comprehensively and transparently, making it very easy for me to make an informed choice. Not only have I found a tremendous deal, but all the extras (like protection) have been sorted too. I really can't fault the service: quick, friendly, painless. I look forward to working with Alexander Hall again in the future.

I cannot recommend Alexander Hall (and Patrick Hulse in particular) enough. They have simplified a rather daunting and scary process into a walk in the park. Solid, substantiated advice coupled with bespoke customer service and proactive approach makes Alexander Hall the go to mortgage broker. Their knowledge and understanding of the market and links to the industry makes them an invaluable asset. I would really not ever consider arranging for a mortgage without their help and advice.

MCIFA Property Finance

10 Albemarle St, Mayfair, London W1S 4HH, UK – 020 7495 7333

I found MCIFA extremely helpful, the team are really knowledgable and efficient and made the whole procedure enjoyable and easy. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for expert mortgage advice. Great service.

We went to Jon after being turned down by numerous banks for a relatively small loan and he managed to find a lender who wanted to take us on despite our credit issues and incredibly short lead times. We don't think we would have managed to get our property if we hadn't worked with someone so knowledgeable!

Rose Capital Partners

94 Baker St, Marylebone, London W1U 6FZ, UK – 020 7935 7866

I have been dealing with Rita Benko at Rose Capital Partners in getting my mortgage for my first flat in London. I can honestly say that I have never dealt with anyone more professional than Rita, she is extremely hardworking with excellent communication skills, she keeps me in the loop all the time and is very reassuring. The fact that she responds to my emails straight away whether it's a Saturday morning or a Sunday evening is beyond me as I don't expect it at all but it's very clear that this is a person who goes above and beyond for her clients and she is very efficient with quick responses - even if she has to contact other people to get me the answers, she does it straight away. She has excellent attention to detail, remembers small details about my life and does everything she can to make this process simple for me. I am recommending Rita to all my friends and I will definitely be using her again.

Rose Capital Partners has dealt with my mortgage applications on two separate occasions. Each time they have been incredibly professional and have gone above and beyond in helping secure my house sale. They have also given me great financial advice. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying a property.
