Online Mortgage Advisor Leadership and Writing policy
Online Mortgage Advisor employs a team of dedicated content and marketing specialists with experience in finance, and we work with expert mortgage brokers who have whole-of-market knowledge and niche expertise.
The advisors we’ve teamed up with all hold Financial Conduct Authority-recognised qualifications including CeMAP and are passionate about helping customers secure the finance they need, whatever their background.
About our team
Knowledge and mastery are among our core values and we pride ourselves on the expertise our team can provide. Our website is an emporium of up-to-date mortgage information, written by content experts with years of experience in the finance and property sectors, and rigorously fact-checked and signed off by mortgage brokers.
When you make an enquiry with us, our dedicated team will make sure you’re matched with the right mortgage expert for your needs and circumstances. We only pair our customers up with brokers who are the best in the business, and we’re picky about who we work with.
You can find out more about how Online Mortgage Advisor started in our About Us section.
To ensure you’re getting the right advice and a five-star service, we vet all of the brokers we work with and train them up ourselves. All advisors must pass a LIBF Accredited Development Program at our Advisor Academy before they can join the network.
All of the articles you’ll find on our websites are a collaboration between expert brokers and professional writers with vast experience in finance and property content production. Our writers draft the articles with input from mortgage advisors and the brokers in our network proof the final product, checking it for accuracy and compliance.
None of our articles contain financial advice but instead give information on various topics, in line with Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulations. Our website is an emporium of information that will help prepare you for your free, no-obligation consultation with the mortgage brokers we work with.

Pete Mugleston, Managing Director
Pete is one of our co-founders and an expert in all things mortgages. He cut his teeth right in the middle of the credit crunch when plenty of people needed help finding finance, but few UK mortgage providers were actually lending and the right advice was hard to come by.
Pete found great success in going the extra mile to find mortgages for people whom many others considered lost causes. The experience he gained, coupled with his love of helping people reach their goals, inspired him to establish Online Mortgage Advisor.
As our digital marketing guru, David is an expert in SEO, PR and content. His principles-based approach to marketing has been instrumental in helping us position ourselves where we need to be to attract customers and deliver the best possible experience.
When David met Pete, they found that their talents, although at opposite ends of the spectrum, complimented each other beautifully. The rest, as they say, is history.
As our Content Manager, Mark writes, edits and commissions all of the copy on our website and works closely with our network of mortgage brokers to ensure it’s 100% accurate. Before joining Online Mortgage Advisor, Mark worked as a journalist for more than 10 years.
Gaining experience with property and business publications sparked his interest in mortgages and finance, and led him to pursue new challenges in this field. Mark joined us in the summer of 2018 and has been spearheading our content output ever since.
As Online Mortgage Advisor’s head of operations, Chris spends most of his time liaising with our extensive network of expert mortgage brokers and making sure customers are matched with the right mortgage advisor as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Chris works closely with all of the brokers we triage customers to, and this helps us ensure that they offer a five-star service every time. He monitors them closely so we can rest assured they’re upholding the stellar customer service standards we insist upon. Our ops manager is always looking at new ways to improve the customer experience.
Phil is a finance expert who helps us produce accurate and up-to-date mortgage content for our website. He provides us with the latest product and eligibility criteria information, reviews articles before they’re published and proofreads work for our writing team.
Phil is the head of MCI Club – an organisation which works with UK professional mortgage intermediaries to give access to lenders, insurers and product providers offering market-leading terms – having set up the business himself back in 2014.
Currently serving as a director with Birmingham-based brokerage Finance 4 Business, Dave has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services. He started his career with Yorkshire Building Society and Accord mortgages before joining SPPL in 2006.
*Based on our research, the content contained in this article is accurate as of the most recent time of writing. Lender criteria and policies change regularly so speak to one of the advisors we work with to confirm the most accurate up to date information. The information on the site is not tailored advice to each individual reader, and as such does not constitute financial advice. All advisors working with us are fully qualified to provide mortgage advice and work only for firms who are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. They will offer any advice specific to you and your needs.
Some types of buy to let mortgages are not regulated by the FCA. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. As a mortgage is secured against your home, it may be repossessed if you do not keep up with repayments on your mortgage. Equity released from your home will also be secured against it.
