Meet the Team

Simon Mayo

With a career starting in Financial Services in 1997, Simon has always had a passion for simplifying Financial Services, to ensure people have access to the most suitable products to meet their needs, whilst delivering great outcomes for customers.

Creating a business that provides access to mortgages to find your dream home and providing access to insurance to ensure you covered for those unplanned events really resonated with Simon, especially as a Dad of a family of four with one boy and three girls, really helped Simon understand what is most important to his clients.
