Freedom Finance, one of the UK’s leading digital lending marketplaces and embedded finance providers, has appointed Nick Jones as Director of Freedom for Intermediaries.

In his new role, Nick will lead the growth and development of Freedom Finance’s intermediated division through its Freedom for Intermediaries offering, a service dedicated to intermediaries who are looking to support their clients with specialist lending requirements.

Nick joins Freedom Finance from West One Loans, a specialist mortgage and property finance company, where he was Sales Director. He has significant experience in helping intermediaries serve their clients in the mortgage sector, having held senior positions at Roma Finance and Together.

In the face of a rapidly changing credit market, Freedom is investing to increase its capacity to serve intermediaries helping their clients find the right financing products.
As high street banks see new lending volumes constrained, Freedom is committed to increasing access to and awareness of secured and specialist lending options. Strong demand was seen in the second charge mortgage market in 2022, as the number of loans written in the 12 months to January 2023 were 37% higher than the previous year.

Freedom Finance helps millions of customers find the best secured and unsecured credit products available to them through its proprietary matching marketplace. Its intermediary offering - Freedom for Intermediaries - provides market-leading search technology, industry knowledge and a wide lending panel to mortgage brokers to help them find the right finance solutions for their clients.

Nick Jones, Director of Freedom for Intermediaries at Freedom Finance, commented: “It is an exciting time to be joining Freedom Finance, a business that combines industry-leading technology and data with a team that really understands financial intermediaries and their clients.
“Secured credit is playing an increasingly important role in consumer finance in the UK and I look forward to working with Andrew and the team at Freedom to develop a wide-ranging specialist lending service.”

Andrew Fisher, Chief Growth Officer at Freedom Finance, said: “I am delighted to welcome Nick to Freedom Finance, he brings a wealth of property finance experience to the team. Nick’s valuable lender-side perspective will help us build a market-leading specialist lending distribution service.”
