Mortgages as an employee benefit
Commenting on the concept of mortgages as a benefits, Darren Laverty welcomes the idea, however it does raise some concerns over whether it could restrict the range of mortgages employees have access to.
Darren Laverty, sales and marketing director at employee financial benefits provider Secondsight, also welcomes the idea, but has concerns over whether it could restrict the range of mortgages staff have access to. “If people want to increase the probability of getting the best deal, they need to go to a mortgage broker that is unlimited and impartial,” he says. “My only concern about this would be that employees are limited to one organisation, so while [the financial partner] may offer preferential deals from their own product range, it may not be the best on the whole market.”
