About us

We are a small local friendly firm of financial advisers based in Leigh. Both our advisers Nigel Boulton and Alan Postlethwaite have over 30 years experience in the Financial Services Industry. Both are available to help and advise you to meet your needs and requirements. We are flexible with appointments and able to meet you at our office or in the comfort of your own home. We pride ourselves on excellent personal service. We acknowledge that every client has different needs, especially first time buyers. We spend whatever time is required with clients to ensure they fully understand the commitment they are about to undertake. We do not want clients to feel rushed and certainly not pressured into any commitment. We believe in giving best advice.

What will it cost

We provide “Independent” mortgage advice and will provide you, the client, the choice of how we are paid.

Most lenders will pay us a commission when new business is introduced to them. At the point of us making a recommendation to you, we will ensure that you are aware of the amount of commission we will receive. It will be clearly stated on the Key Facts Illustration document that we produce for you.

How we are paid


You can pay us a fee, which will be £700 and the commission we receive from the lender will be refunded to you on mortgage completion.

You pay NO fee and we retain the commission we receive from the lender as payment for arranging the mortgage.
