Amy Jackson - Mortgage Protection and Wills Adviser

Amy Jackson - Mortgage Protection and Wills Adviser

I started my Mortgage Financial career in 2015 when I became a case manager for a busy firm. I worked my way up and became a Mortgage and Protection Advisor after passing my CeMAP in 2017. My passion as a mortgage advisor is to make sure the client’s needs are met, which included mortgage protection. Having had so many people close to me, mum, uncle, and friend, be diagnosed with Cancer, I saw hand in hand how important it is to have mortgage protection no matter how young you are. These personal experiences caused a drive in my belief on advising protection to our clients. I also expanded my knowledge further to advise clients on the importance of Wills and Trusts.
