Ian Simpson has built an enviable reputation with his clients and peers. The depth of his understanding of finance has meant that his clients have seen significant benefits as a result of his guidance and expertise. Ian’s personal and passionate interest in property investment means he is well placed to assist a broad range of buyers and investors.
“I work closely with clients to understand their goals and, as a result, offer solutions that make a significant impact on their financial future,” he explains. “In my two decades in banking and finance I’ve developed the knowledge to be able to explain the various products, processes and procedures in a clear and friendly way.”
Ian takes great pride in the quality of service he offers clients, one that has been developed throughout many years.
Ian spent 10 years in investment banking, which included intense interest rate dealings for organisations such as Macquarie Bank. He also worked for several years in the London financial markets. Ian started as a personal mortgage adviser with Mortgage Force in 2003, which merged with Smartline in July 2009. Having built such a wealth of experience and expertise, and as a keen property investor himself, Ian is well placed to support clients making a property purchase, which can be a stressful and time-consuming process.
Nowadays, Ian is recognised within the industry as a leading broker, winning numerous awards including Franchise of the Year four times and being a Top 100 broker in Australia for the last seven years.
“My clients, quite rightly, expect that I will work closely with them to understand their unique requirements and make the borrowing process simple and stress-free,” he says. “Not only do I support clients in this way, but I also provide ongoing support and management of their interest rate profile, which is valued by my existing clients. I take great pride in the fact that my client list has grown largely as a result of word-of-mouth referrals and my business relationships.”
Further enhancing his work to clients, Ian also offers a very fast and personalised service, which includes very efficient email and mobile communications to suit the client’s needs.
Ian currently serves clients all over Australia as well as expatriates living in London, Hong Kong, New York and Singapore. He has expertise in supporting business professionals and experienced property investors.
