Top Five Property Finance
Enness Private’s co-founder and MD is thankful that he’s escaped the world of surveying and ventured instead into a service that matters most to UHNWs — the one that makes sure ‘everyone lives in a home’.
‘It’s one of the few financial decisions that has quite a personal tug on their heartstrings, whether it be pressure from family members, wives, their own machismo — or time,’ says Wade-Jones.
It’s important therefore that the adviser stays ‘at the absolute top of the game’, he says. Suitably, Wade-Jones has aced his competitors in the landscape since founding the firm in 2007, and has recently been crowned the ‘Best Broker for Large Loans’ at the British Mortgage Awards.
Apart from working with ‘every lender who will lend in the UK’ (high street banks, private banks and specialist providers), the straight-talking Wade-Jones says Enness Private is ‘the only real’ HNW mortgage brokerage that truly caters to foreign nationals. An international presence helps, with many of his transactions taking place in the south of France, Monaco, Zurich and Geneva.
‘And it’s the same people over and over again,’ he enthuses — a testament to the success of its full-service offering that also covers mortgages involving complex income structures and ‘unusual circumstances’.
