2019: what better year to start a mortgage revolution?

Technically, it’s probably a bit too late to wish you all a Happy New Year, but we’ll say it anyway!

We’ve taken a quick bit of time out to reflect on everything we achieved last year and our goals for 2019.

Thanks to the tireless work of Dashly’s dedicated team and invaluable input from outside advisers, we were able to exceed all our targets and expectations in 2018.

After being accepted into the FCA’s sandbox, which generated instant credibility and recognition, Dashly created some real excitement among early adopters, the media and big chunks of the broker and the intermediary community. We’re still buzzing from it all now.
As a result of the publicity we secured, Dashly was able to bolster its team with senior mortgage professionals and new investors, not least of which includes Paradigm’s chief executive, Bob Hunt.

As our team of experts grew, so did Dashly’s waiting list — and with minimal marketing, as major media outlets such as The Sun, Daily Mail and The Sunday Times wrote rave reviews about us.

They singled out Dashly as a major disruptor in the future of home loans due to its open banking registration option, effortless sign-up process and ‘always-on’ mortgage comparison

...and we’re still blushing today.

We were also lucky enough to end the year on a high note as the recipient of the 2018 Finder Award for Mortgage Innovation. On top of that, we were shortlisted for the 2019 Mortgage Strategy ‘Best Broker for Digital Innovation’ award, an event we’re proud to say is known as ‘the Oscars’ of the mortgage sector.

Bolstered by early user support, wide press coverage and a growing number of strategic partnerships and investors, we’re determined to make consumer-empowering mortgage comparison tools as accessible as possible in 2019.

We’re super excited this year to be working alongside a select number of brokers, lenders and fintech partners to revolutionise the mortgage industry for the good of all customers, and in particular those mortgage prisoners that the current system is failing.

However much uncertainty there may be around Brexit, our entire game plan is about giving homeowners the certainty and peace of mind that they are paying no more for their mortgage than they need to.

To that end, we’ll be continuously enhancing and refining our products and forming new strategic partnerships with other exciting companies that put the consumer first.

2019 is shaping up to be a year of change on countless fronts: and so what better time to start a mortgage revolution?

Best regards,

Ross Boyd and Team Dashly.
