We speak to director Murray Ewing:


What is the best thing about being in the secured loan business?

Knowing that you have helped people and perhaps lifted a huge financial weight off their shoulders is a great feeling.

What keeps you focussed?

Maintaining the excellent service levels that we offer to brokers and customers continually motivates me.

What qualities do you look for in your employees or colleagues?

The usual things like honesty and reliability are very important, however a sense of humour is definitely required in this industry.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

An optimist – you have to have a positive attitude to succeed in business.

What did you want to be as a child?

I played a lot of football when I was younger and would have loved to have been a professional  – alas a lack of talent and dodgy knees won!

What will be the greatest challenge facing the secured loan industry in the coming months?

To continue increasing its reputation as a great alternative to a re-mortgage will continue to be challenging along with educating mortgage brokers that a secured loan may in fact be the best advice for a client.

Who or what makes you laugh?

The best comedy movie ever – Life Of Brian.

Do you dread Monday mornings?

Not at all – I’m always keen to see what’s arrived in the post as there is two days worth of mail due.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

As I am a tad follicly challenged, a full head of hair would be nice.

With whom would you most like to have dinner?

Billy Connolly and Kate Beckinsale.
