Julian is one of the mortgage industry’s true legends, following his passion through thick and thin to run our highly successful Coreco Specialist Finance division.
Having always had an interest in property and initially part qualifying as an Architect, Julian decided to join the Financial Services industry in 1989, cutting his teeth at John Charcol in the early 1990’s. After opening their Guildford Office Julian left to spend time assisting High Net Worth individuals with tax efficient investment schemes.
In 2000 he jointly founded the boutique Mortgage Brokerage Cobalt Capital. As the managing partner of Cobalt Capital and at the centre of its growth, the company expanded to a peak of 90 staff and developed into one of the leading mortgage brokerages in London.
With more than a growing interest in the specialist / commercial sectors of the mortgage market and a determination to obtain finance on the seemingly impossible, Julian decided to follow his passion and invest into Coreco, becoming a Director of Coreco Specialist Finance in 2010.
His aim is to drive this business forward to become one of the strongest specialist finance teams in the industry, focussing on large residential loans for development / investment purposes and large property portfolios.
Julian was a short-listed finalist in the “Best Large Loan Broker” category at The British Mortgage Awards 2012 and 2013, walking away as the deserved winner in 2014. Julian has been shortlisted again for the “Best Large Loan Broker” category at The British Mortgage Awards 2016.
