The Self Employed Finance Specialists

At Active, we exist to help business owners, entrepreneurs and company directors to secure mortgages and protection quickly, easily and without distracting you from your business and your family. Active Financial

What can Active Financial do for you?

Go to most mortgage brokers and lenders and you’ll find that getting a mortgage as a self-employed business owner is tough.

You’ve probably already realised that.

The truth is that the world of mortgages isn’t set up for people who run their businesses, which can make getting a mortgage for people like you harder.

But we can help you make it happen.

Because we specialise in this exact area, we know what other brokers don’t.

How Do Active help you?

Over the years we’ve worked with business owners, we’ve built a strategic process that gives you the best chance of getting the finance that suits you and your families circumstances.

We call it the ACTIVE framework, and it works, time and time again.

No matter what type of finance you’re looking for, the framework serves to secure the best deal for you, as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We know what buttons to press, what products to apply for and exactly how you need to get your ducks in a row in order to achieve the finance you need for the home you want.

Whether you’re looking for your first home, your forever home, to invest in property, or protect your business or family, we can help, by putting you on the right track towards acceptance, and dealing with the entire process, so you can focus on doing what you do best.

When you work with Active, we reduce your stress and save you time.

No longer do you have to ring around to try and find lenders who might service you, or spend hours on the phone to brokers.

Why are Active Financial so good at helping people like you?

Because we ARE people like you. Here’s our founder Gary’s story:

I qualified to provide mortgage advice in 2002, launching Active Mortgage in 2008. But it wasn’t until in 2015, we realised firsthand how hard it is to get a mortgage when you’re self-employed. My wife Ayesha was a sole trader at the time, and I was running Active, and we wanted to buy our own home. Which – as you’ll know – is easier said than done. We really struggled to find a mortgage, and when we did get one, it didn’t really add maximum value, nor did it give us a competitive interest rate. At that point it became my mission to ensure that business owners, company directors, people like me and you – people who risk it all to create something greater and better – are able to secure the perfect mortgage without the stress and worry that I went through.

What’s the next step?

The first step to securing any form of finance is a strategy call, where we can help define your financial goals and understand your circumstances.

The outcome is always positive, if we can’t help you with finance now, we’ll help you prepare to maximise your chances in the future.

In the mortgage world, failing to prepare is preparing to fail, which is why we recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as possible, even if you’re 1-2 years out from applying for your mortgage.

The sooner you get in touch, the higher our chances of being able to help you.
