The Financial Detectives is a family-run Independent Mortgage Broker based in the heart of Taunton, Somerset. However our services cover much more than just advising and arranging mortgages. We offer whole of market access to domestic and commercial insurances and financing options as well.  We pride ourselves on our professional and friendly service giving you the advantage of dealing with an approachable, local firm.

We are advisers and not salespeople.  If the right thing for you to do is to change nothing but stay with your existing arrangement then that is what we’ll advise.  We are not tied to a particular bank, lender or insurer.  This gives us the freedom to find what’s most suitable for you from every product available.  Doing the research for a decision as important as a mortgage, life insurance or will can be daunting and time consuming.  Our experience in the industry allows us to do most of the ground work for you.  We are always up to date with the latest product developments and the nuances of each provider’s processes. This knowledge helps you get what you need, whilst saving you time and frustration.  One of the team will keep you updated throughout the entire process, ensuring your needs are met and concerns addressed.

Being a family run business, The Financial Detectives work to build lasting relationships.  We take the time to find out about our client’s needs and circumstances, rather than just offering generic, financial advice. But don’t take our word for it, read our client testimonials to get a truer picture of how we serve our customers.
