Meet The Team
At MMF, we are specialist advisers that can search the marketplace to find you the best lender and package to suit your needs.
We are great listeners and believe that the best solution is always derived from a thorough understanding of our clients and their problems. This allows us to rapidly develop an understanding of the nature of how a client’s business operates and provide the best advice and financial products.
With the number of financial institutions and products so vast, it can be a confusing landscape for people to navigate. Our success in successfully guiding our clients comes from us knowing or learning about their industry and business. It cannot be a one product fits all approach. We know that this is a major factor in why our clients trust us and continue to recommend mmf to their friends, family and business associates.
Our team at MMF is proactive. We like to establish a team arrangement with our clients’ accountants, solicitors and any other parties involved in a project to ensure that all bases are covered and there is transparency around our client goals.
This approach is vital to us when working with clients so that they can feel safe and trust us. The learning curve for clients can often be a steep one and it is our goal to make it as seamless as possible, free from stress and difficulty.
Our purpose is to provide support to individuals and businesses to achieve their financial goals, with sound advice and honest appraisal of the available options, and to go to bat for them as hard as we can when the time arises.
