How Can John Charcol Help with Private Bank Mortgages?
If you are a high-net-worth individual looking for a mortgage lender that understands your unique property needs, you may find that a private bank mortgage offers you far more tailored experience than the standard products advertised by high street lenders.
Homebuyers with complex incomes or wealth streams may find their mortgage options restricted if they approach traditional high street lenders, who typically apply a “tick box” approach to assessing whether to grant a mortgage. Private banks consider options on a case-by-case basis, often considering an individual borrower’s ability to fund their mortgage by taking account their wealth in addition to income.
Private bank mortgages are often bespoke to the individual borrower. Finding the right funding partner and negotiating terms and repayment methods can be inherently complex, requiring careful consideration and meticulous execution. Your new property may also be subject to non-standard construction for a mortgage, so it's important to discuss with a specialist broker.
At John Charcol, we have over 45 years of experience helping medium and high-net-worth clients to find the right mortgage at terms which fit their life aspirations, income and wealth. We understand our clients are busy people so we ensure our service is tailored to their sometimes hectic schedules. Learn more about the specialist mortgages we can help with.

Private Bank vs High Street Lender
Many high street lenders will not have the expertise to process particularly complicated or high-net-worth cases in a timely manner. John Charcol has relationships with a number of specialist private banks that are able to provide a more flexible bespoke perspective on an applicant’s affordability.
Private banks assess each mortgage lending decision on an individual basis, taking into account a potential borrower’s assets and the bigger financial picture. Knowing exactly which lenders to approach with these complex cases is something that John Charcol has been practicing for over 45 years. In this case, experience really does matter.
