In 2019 Our Client Group was formed; bringing together two very successful businesses, our parent companys umbrella. Whilst our parent company operates internationally from their HQ in South Africa, we are a UK-based financial services specialist that supports our customers across a range of products and services, with hubs throughout the UK, including London, Reading, Manchester and Cardiff.

We also celebrated our 10th Birthday and fundamentally 10 years of helping those with ideas; by saying yes to our customers. We've propelled entrepreneurs on their journeys; we've given first-timers a leg-up onto the property ladder; and we've opened up the lending market to many.

As for what the next 12 months has to offer; we are embarking upon the delivery of our Purpose; a Purpose that underpins our next 3 to 5 years as a growing business. Join us today and we will make the same Promises to you as an employee, as we do to each of our Customers.
