Services

Offering advice on all types of financial services from your first mortgage, life assurance, to your final pension, Bright Money Independent Ltd aims to assist with the financial services life cycle to help our clients make the right decisions. We do this in plain and simple terms avoiding jargon, so our clients fully understand the recommended products and associated risks

Working in an open, frank and honest way designed to assist and keep our clients fully updated. With the vast choices available changing daily, we take the pain and hassle out of choosing the right products, leaving our clients free to do their jobs.

As soon as a new client makes contact we arrange a time to discuss their situation, needs and objectives. We complete a fact find, discuss the various options available, along with any fees and timescales applicable. We then complete the research and present our recommendation to the client.

If a client would like to proceed we gather outstanding documents. For a mortgage this will be:

  • Photo ID (passport or driving licence)
  • Address verification (utility bill, council tax)
  • Bank statements showing salary
  • Pay slips and p60s or last 3 years accounts and SA302’s

We then complete the administration by processing the application to the provider and keep you updated along the way. Once the transaction is processed we then arrange for a periodic review to ensure the products arranged are still the most suitable for your circumstances.

Your personal adviser will always be available for any queries you have in relation to any of our services. We can arrange visits to your home or our confidential meeting rooms in Thame.
