About James

James has over 25 years experience working in independent financial services, always specialising in Mortgages and Protection, and he is a member of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries.  

James set up Independent James in January 2007 and has developed the company to be much respected within the industry.  James is on several workgroups, and ij maintains key account status with all major lenders.  

Personal Interests

He’s a coffee lover and always at hand for a chat and a pour-over; he’s an armchair football expert, Middlesbrough mad and a MAMIL; though this has been punctuated with a new arrival in late 2022.  

“I’ve been reading a lot more at present – Malcolm Gladwell, Murakami, MW Craven and Alan Bennett. Alongside motivational autobiographies and business books of course”.  

“To me family and friends are everything. My wife and I visit our family and friends in Leicester and North Yorkshire as much as possible, though the latter is still quite a drive from the North London burbs!”.  

Fun fact: James’s entrepreneurial journey started at university when he started organising nationwide nightclub coach trips.
