Led by Ken Thorkildsen, the new Director of Obelisk Private Finance, Ken brings over 21 years experience in the financial sector, 12 years as a fully qualified Financial Advisor and is well versed in international mortgage solutions, savings and investments.

Ken comments, "In today's uncertain climate, it is imperative that we get the right finance solution for every single client. I personally ensure that each and every client is presented with a completely tailor-made, profit focused package."    

Obelisk Private Finance is one of many specialist companies that the Obelisk Group will be launching in 2008, in a direct response to clients' comments.    

Steve Hampson, Operations Director of the Obelisk group of companies adds, "Obelisk Private Finance was really the brainchild of our clients. They talked, we listened, it is as simple as that. With Ken on our team I am very positive that Obelisk Private Finance will be at the forefront of the international finance solutions sector."

Steve continues, "Many of our clients have expressed difficulties when trying to source international mortgages, UK and Irish release of equity and profitable income plans. As a successful, well-established business, Obelisk is able to expand into this area and therefore help our clients reach their investment and savings goals."

With financial markets becoming harder to negotiate, having someone to take care of the paperwork, let you know what is required and by when can really take the pressure off.

Ken adds, "Our international mortgages could enable a property investor to buy a property in an off-plan project - Capital 68 in Bulgaria - for as little as £260 per month based on an average property price with a local mortgage, subject to status. The strength of the Euro also adds to the overall return of the venture, especially if the client decides to repatriate funds."    

The company deals directly with key banking and investment institutions from all over the world and is therefore able to put together packages that are both competitive and cost effective. Obelisk Private Finance takes away the anxiety of having to source individual products by providing clients with advantageous buy-to-let mortgages, fund and currency leveraging, off shore banking and profitable income plans individually tailored to their needs.

One of Obelisk Private Finances' key advantage points is the ability to provide mortgages in major property investment countries such as Spain, Bulgaria, Turkey and Italy, bringing a unique financial service based entirely on meeting the clients specific budget.

Steve Hampson concludes, "The service is open to all new business and existing clients. Our goal this year is to expand into a full range of services in the world of property and finance creating a unique one-stop-shop for our clients."

Increased Demand For Traded Endowment Policies Broadens Range Of Companies Being Used

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008 | Financial Press Release

Last month, online trading platform saw offers being made on policies from over 40 different Life Funds. In the past this would have been unusual behaviour but as more and more people are investing in endowment policies and selling endowments, this is becoming common practice.

Blackwater, UK (PRWEB) May 14, 2008 -- Last month, online trading platform saw offers being made on policies from over 40 different Life Funds. In the past this would have been unusual behaviour but as more and more people are investing in endowment policies and selling endowments, this is becoming common practice. The increase in demand amongst those buying policies means that people are now using in a wider range of Life Companies than they were before.

Traditionally, people are used to seeing traded endowment policies being bought from the big players such as Norwich Union, Prudential and Standard Life. However, the recent changes in the market have seen the likes of the Life Association of Scotland, National Farmers Mutual and Eagle Star now receiving offers for policies. This is great news for the smaller and less known companies because previously they have had low investment demand.

Jo Bridger, head of marketing at has said, "With the majority of traded policies going into large funds, there is both increased demand and a need for diversification. The funds are achieving this by including the smaller and weaker life funds amongst their portfolios."

There has been plenty of speculation and research into why the demand for endowment policies has continued to increase recently. One of the possibilities is the fact that investors in continental Europe have a strong desire to seek out low risk investments that can provide capital growth. They are particularly drawn to the UK which has a strong with -- profits sector and traded endowment policy growth opportunities.

The rise in the number of people buying and selling endowments has finally given smaller companies the chance they need to be seen and heard in a competitive market. Under normal circumstances this would be virtually impossible as people tend to stick to companies they have heard of because they feel safer investing their money in them.

This is also a step forward for those who are looking into selling endowments as the market is so good at the moment. Jo Bridger has said, "This is great news for policy holders who need to sell their endowments and now is a good time for advisers to talk to their clients about selling." It is even possible for advisers to get a range of quotes from endowment buyers and trade policies or free at IFA trading platform was established in 2000 and has since gone on to become the leading IFA trading platform for traded endowment policies. Their parent company is PolicyPlus International Plc which has also enjoyed much success. The company is a leading market maker, Queen's Award Winner and is widely recognised throughout the industry.
