Undeterred by the credit crunch, Fiona Watts left her role as Head of International Mortgages at a large foreign exchange company with a vision. Not only to become the leading international mortgage broker within 5 years, but to do so with a single-minded focus on service standards. Prioritising the recruitment and training of the best bi-lingual and analytical minds and using her extensive relationships with the international banking departments of retail and private banks, Fiona has created a brave, modern and dynamic international financial services company.

We are the best in the market, with awards and hundreds of client testimonials to prove it and are quick to adapt to the changing economic climate and technological advances, becoming the first international brokerage to be FCA-regulated and expanding product lines to offer a more complete service to our clients.

Fiona is passionate about supporting women in Finance and offering opportunities to both bi-lingual graduates and women returning to work. IPF is currently 100% female, and 40% of the workforce are working part-time and flexible hours.

Our unique set-up has certainly helped us flourish over the past 15 years, and we continue to adapt and invest in our team whilst harnessing the technology to streamline our processes to ever-improve our client service standards. And we are so proud that this has been recognised by the industry and our clients as we were voted best Specialist Mortgage Broker in the British Bank Awards 2020.

What our clients say

I felt supported and well guided
30 Oct 2022 - Georgina - Var

"I found the service provided by IPF thorough and supportive. Having used another broker and been let down I turned to IPF and it was chalk and cheese. Louis took the time to talk through my various proposals and identify the right way forward. I felt supported and well guided through what is an involved and time-consuming mortgage application process in France."

...made the whole process seamless and painless...
21 Oct 2022 - James & Renee - Morzine

"Cannot recommend IPF highly enough, we had spoken to our French bank regarding a mortgage and very quickly came to understand the complexities involved with a UK > France mortgage application. Our estate agent thankfully suggested that we contact IPF. From the outset IPF made the whole process seamless and painless, they found the most suitable product, guided us through the application and dealt with all the arising questions that came from the French lender. Thank you to all the team at International Private Finance for helping us purchase our dream home in the Alps."
