StepChange Financial Solutions wins Best Equity Release Broker at Mortgage Strategy Awards

StepChange Financial Solutions, the mortgage and equity release advice subsidiary of StepChange Debt Charity, won the Mortgage Strategy award for Best Equity Release Broker at last night’s Mortgage Strategy Awards.

StepChange Financial Solutions is an independent, non-fee charging, whole-of-market mortgage advice provider, which receives referrals from the parent StepChange Debt Charity and from lenders, is also open for any member of the public, whether or not they are experiencing debt issues, to use directly. The brokerage is highly regarded in the advice sector.

Both StepChange Debt Charity and StepChange Financial Solutions believe that equity release can be a powerful tool for resolving financial difficulty when used appropriately, but also subscribe strongly to the ethos that any form of borrowing should be used only after also carefully considering all other options that may meet a client’s needs.

Julie Gale, Head of StepChange Financial Solutions and of StepChange Mortgage Debt Advice said: “We’re an unusual mortgage and equity release advice provider, being a wholly owned subsidiary of the UK’s largest debt charity. While we may not be large or well-known, we’re absolutely delighted that the quality of our work has been recognised through this award. We pride ourselves on looking holistically at our clients’ situations, and seeing this valued in the wider world leaves us delighted.”
