Steve Jascourt

I am a qualified Mortgage Adviser and co- founder of HB Partners.

I have worked in Financial Services for over 30 years and for the last 25 years I have specialised in mortgages. 

Even after all this time, I still enjoy making that phone call to my clients to tell them that their mortgage has been approved. 

About Me

"I am very lucky to have a wonderful wife, 2 beautiful daughters and a Cocker Spaniel called Hank".

I am a member of Rock Choir and the weekly rehearsals are a great way to unwind from the stresses of mortgage applications."

"I am a lifelong supporter of Leeds United."

Mildly interesting fact

In 2018, my wife and I drove the full length of Route 66 from Chicago to LA – all 2448 miles

Professional Qualifications

· Financial Planning Certificate: 1,2 & 3

· CeMap

· Chartered Insurance Institute: ER1 – Equity Release

In 2007, Steve won the Mortgage Broker of the Year Award at the annual British Mortgage Awards.

"I have built up great relationships with lenders, both mainstream and also with private banks. My area of expertise is with £1m+ mortgages and high net worth individuals and my contacts with lenders are invaluable for this type of lending.

Whilst large mortgages are my specialism, I am equally happy to help all clients, whatever their mortgage requirements. Having been in this role for so long, I now find myself helping the children of my long standing clients with their property purchases. I call them my 2 nd generation mortgages and apart from this making me feel old, it is a wonderful feeling.

I take an holistic approach when discussing the financial circumstances of my clients which helps to identify all areas of need. This in turn enables me to introduce clients to other areas of the HB Partners Group."

Mark Culham

I am a professional Mortgage & Protection Adviser & Co Founder of HB Partners.

After more than twenty years in investments and finance, Mark teamed up with his great friend Steve to set up HB Partners. 

"With a career spanning over 25 years in finance, I have worked in Commodities Trading and Fund Management. I’ve also owned and managed companies in Investment Broking, Wealth Management and now Mortgage & Protection."

About Me

I’m married with four older children and two spaniels around which my life seems to strangely evolve. I’ve recently turned 50 which means I should be really looking at sports cars.​

Mildly interesting fact

I was a skiing instructor and a qualified masseur.

Favourite reads. Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall. Dull title – fascinating read. 

Whilst working, studying and relaxing I created a playlist. If you enjoy moody film scores, feel free to listen here.

After more than twenty years in investments and finance, Mark teamed up with his great friend Steve to set up HB Partners. 

"Getting a mortgage can be stressful and sometimes complex. It’s also possibly the biggest financial commitment most of us will ever undertake, which makes it essential to get it right. I like being the person people come to when that specialist help is needed.​

Protection planning for me personally is hugely important. When it comes to arranging personal or business protection, I don’t sell, and I don’t push. I listen, advise and recommend. My process is more about discussing and identifying financial risks and putting in place a plan to mitigate them with the best policy available at that time."
