We hope you enjoy our version of how it started/ how it’s going?

Because here at London Money, we will always find a different way to engage with our clients and professional contacts and one way to do that is to show that we are no different from you. We have the scars; we have the crow’s feet, and we certainly have the bad backs and sore knees.

But we have also all been first time buyers and bought and sold houses. Many of us have created, raised and protected our families and so when we talk to you about your own situation we do so with confidence, knowledge and empathy.

So please, take a moment to look through our biographies and see how we have changed over the years and perhaps, just be thankful, you decided to not become a mortgage broker yourself!

Martin Stewart - Director

Martin is the founder and driving force behind The Money Group’s inaugural company – London Money. Now on his third decade of working in the financial services, clients and partners benefit form his wealth of experience and intimate knowledge of the mortgage market. He believes that those running Financial Services businesses should always be the leader when it comes to doing the day job. And one of his current day jobs is being a Director of The Money Group. 

Being the director of the flagship brand, London Money (Directly Authorised since 2011), Martin quickly identified that this was the sector that is ripe for exponential growth and believes that unifying a previously fragmented sector, was the best way to get the broker at the forefront of the industry – where they rightfully belong

Martin has a reputation for going above and beyond what is expected. Indeed he encourages the entire London Money team to go that extra mile for their clients. He believes that mortgage advice, as well as financial planning, should be simple and smart; an approach which runs through London Money like a stick of rock.
