Working and building your wealth

You may be many years away from retirement. You might be raising a family; perhaps considering private education, and therefore wondering how to cover school fees. You may be working your way up the career ladder, or running your own business. What all of our clients have in common is the desire to plan for tomorrow, whilst enjoying today!

How can we help?

We will:

  • Assess your current financial situation
  • Understand your goals and aspirations for the short term and the long term
  • Formulate a financial plan to help you to achieve your goals
  • Deliver the plan, managing the relevant paperwork and ensuring that it’s implemented as smoothly as possible
  • Offer regular reviews of your situation and adapt your plan if necessary, ensuring that there’s a back-up plan for the unexpected!

Having a financial plan in place will give you the confidence to face the future. We’ll provide you with bespoke, one-to-one support to ensure that your plan will work for you and your family.

If you are moving home, considering buying your business premises or simply looking for the best re-mortgage deal, we can provide mortgages for the following property types:

  • Residential
  • Buy-to-Let
  • Let-to-Buy
  • Self-Build

We have access to the whole of the mortgage market. This means that we will find a competitive product for you which is the most appropriate for your needs. We do not advise on commercial mortgages or bridging loans, but have established links with commercial lenders who we can refer you to.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up payments on your mortgage.

When it comes to planning for the unexpected, it’s essential that you consider protection. This will provide an income for you or your family should you die, become seriously ill or are unable to work. We offer independent advice on various insurance products including:

  • Life assurance
  • Accident, sickness and unemployment cover
  • Income protection/permanent health insurance (PHI)
  • Critical illness cover
  • Serious illness cover

We’ll ensure that your policies are appropriate to your needs and provide good value for money. We can often replace existing policies for ones with lower premiums.

"The service and personal attention my husband and I received from Mark Bastable of Templegate financial services was way beyond what we were expecting. His knowledge of his job and commitment to finding us a mortgage with the best rate helped us buy the home we were renting. My husband and I went bankrupt in 2013 and lost everything due to the recession, we never thought it would be possible to get back on the property market. Mark was confident from the off and that this was something he could achieve...and he didn't let us down. He was with us every step of the way and would respond to every email I sent quickly and efficiently. Mark came highly recommended from a family member and would recommend him to anyone trying to get a mortgage. Justine and Ken Harris Proud Houseowners"

"Mark has been advising my wife and I for 6 years in solely in regard to investments. Recently we decided to move house so sought Mark's advice in regard to securing a mortgage. We had no hesitation in accepting Mark's subsequent recommendation given our positive relationship with him. The mortgage application process was overseen by Mark and completed with few problems. We were completely satisfied with the result as we have been with all the guidance and advice Mark has provided over the past 6 years. "

"When my wife & I wanted to re mortgage in order to staircase to a larger percentage of our shared ownership property, we found Mark to be an enormous help. It's no exaggeration to say they we couldn't have done it without him. From the very start he was friendly, communicative & open. Despite the problems caused by the Covid pandemic Mark was always approachable & ready to talk us through any steps we wanted to go over, either on Zoom, phone or email. As for the actual mortgage product, we couldn't be happier. Everything we were after, Mark found & found it within our means. We will certainly use his services again in the future. Thumbs up for Mark. "

"We first used Nathan Morrisen as our financial adviser, just a few months back when he became a huge help and took on the task of helping us re-mortgage our home, which was then unmortgaged, to raise funds to buy a second home in Cornwall. Nathan visited us in our home to take further details and progress things and very quickly found us several lenders that were willing to consider our application. He found an exceptionally good deal and went above and beyond in getting this for us, despite having some procedural and red tape issues from the Lender regarding our particular and unique situation, which wasn’t a standard set up on paper. The whole deal would have fallen through, had it not been for Nathan’s tenacity and sense of fair play to actually get the lender to follow through on our transaction when we found ourselves in the position of being ideal candidates in reality. All the time wasted by the lender deliberating nearly cost us the excellent rate that Nathan had originally found and again, he fought and argued the case that we should get the deal we originally applied for – and we did. Nothing was too much trouble; he was always there at the end of the phone and it was quite honestly refreshing to experience this approach. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nathan to anyone who needs financial advice, really just as the lovely, personable guy he is, we would use him again automatically. "
