Trustworthy Advice

We aim to be your Adviser of choice for the Rickmansworth, Chilterns and North West London area

Frog Financial

We take our time to understand and correctly identify your individual financial goals, so we can put in place a structured but flexible approach to improve financial stability and prosperity. Ours isn’t a ‘sign the papers and bye-bye’ business. We aim to play the long game, provide on-going reviews as your circumstances change over time and make suitable recommendations when required.

We’re about individuality, and a very personal service so we’re available to talk, almost anytime. Meetings are scheduled to suit you, daytime or evening, before, during or after work, your home, our offices or Caffe Nero – whatever works for you.

We don’t charge for initial client appointments, which doesn’t impact on products or services recommended to our clients. However, we charge a Processing and Administration fee payable should you ask us to arrange your mortgage. Please see below for details.

Clarity of information means all aspects of a transaction are always fully discussed. As much time as you need is taken to make sure you completely understand and are comfortable with every detail along the way.

Client confidence depends on us fulfilling expectations and this is central to our business practice. We advertise our services accurately, clearly and fairly.

Frog’s a local company, working with and within the local community so our reputation is solidly built on the satisfaction of our clients and our business has grown significantly through word of mouth and most of all, client recommendation. However, we’ve also got the strength of one of the UK’s largest networks behind us, so you get the best of both worlds.

Our role is to provide you, our clients, specialist advice. We are dedicated to helping you make informed choices.

THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON A MORTGAGE OR OTHER DEBT SECURED AGAINST IT.

Our range of Processing and Administration fees, payable should you ask us to arrange your mortgage, payable on application, are £395.00 for arranging a Residential or Buy-to-let mortgage, £595.00 for arranging a ‘Limited Company’ buy-to-let mortgage or £595.00 for arranging a Portfolio Landlord buy-to-let mortgage. A ‘Portfolio Landlord’ is defined as client(s) having four or more buy-to-let properties (mortgaged or mortgage free), on completion of this mortgage transaction. If your mortgage does not go ahead, you will receive a refund of 50% of the fee payable if your application falls through.

Craig Scott CeMAP, CeRER
Craig Scott CeMAP, CeRERDirector, Financial Coach and Equity Release Specialist
Craig has been advising his loyal client-base on financial services since 2006 and is committed to representing them for years to come. Frog was established early in 2008, just after Craig moved from Ruislip into Rickmansworth.

Prior to becoming a financial adviser, Craig spent 26 years in the Advertising industry in central London, where he worked at a very senior level and was very well paid too, but ultimately wasn’t fulfilled by the role.

Craig advises on a comprehensive range of mortgages from across the market and protection from a comprehensive panel of providers, which means Frog represents you, the client not the bank, building society or insurance company. Craig explains “our competitors are the high street banks and building societies, but they only offer their own products, therefore they are not able to provide impartial advice”.

Craig says “It’s my job to help, but it’s my duty to ensure my clients can buy the house of their dreams, but more importantly, are able to afford to remain there, should something go wrong, by providing the most appropriate protection solutions for our client’s needs.”
