Contractor Mortgages Made Easy, backed by Livingbridge, will now be known as CMME. The move comes as the specialist mortgage broker expands its focus to provide mortgage and financial advice beyond its traditional contractor audience to include the UK’s diverse and much larger modern workforce of independent professionals.
Since 2004, when the company was founded by Sat Singh, Contractor Mortgages Made Easy has been principally serving the contractor market but the new CMME brand reflects the company’s mission to serve a wider segment of clients to include freelancers, interim managers, contractors, self-employed professionals, entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Jason Powell, CEO of CMME commented: “We have been offering specialist mortgage and financial advice to some thousands of contractors over the last 13 years and we understand very well the challenges that today’s workforce of independent professionals face when it comes to applying for a mortgage. By rebranding to CMME we are responding to a change in the UK’s labour market, where self-employment has become the zeitgeist and we are seeing a shift in the number of people choosing to work for themselves. “
