Hugh is a widely regarded industry leader and the winner of Best Broker for Large Loans for the last two consecutive years at the 2017 and 2016 British Mortgage Awards. He is also listed in the Spears 500 which is recognised across the industry as the definitive guide to the top private client advisers in the world. It describes Hugh as an expert broker and Enness as the most competitive and sought after mortgage brokerage in London.
Property is in Hugh’s blood: he grew up in a family of property investors and rapidly rose to be a Director of London’s largest mortgage broker before founding Enness in August 2007 with Islay Robinson.
Hugh is in charge of the operational running of the company and manages the residential, commercial and protection broking teams.
Our clients benefit from his unrivalled network of contacts in the banking and private client world and he has helped Enness develop what we believe to be the largest network of private and offshore banks that cater for every client, wherever in the world they are based. His views on the mortgage market are often sought and quoted in the national press and he also writes regular columns for a number of financial publications.
Outside of work he is equally goal-driven: he is a sub-3 hour marathon runner, has run multiple ultra-marathons including a 94 kilometre race, cross country, from London to Brighton. His next target is to box as a competitive amateur.
Quite simply the best broker in town – Hugh is my go to guy on all things property and mortgages. Thank you to all the team at Enness.
