A number of the clients we work with are company directors or shareholders and therefore their income is paid in dividends. The very nature of business means that this can result in fluctuating income, as dividends will be based on profits which are affected by a number of variables including market forces and the company’s investment strategy.
Our recent case is a classic example of this. Our client was a one-fifth shareholder in a company which provided him with a small basic salary and six figure yearly dividend. Over the course of the past three years, the company had expanded significantly. Therefore, profits were retained by the business and – as a result – the dividends drawn over the past three years had reduced by between 50-65%.
Our client’s borrowing requirements, existing commitments and dependents made their case a challenge for conventional lenders however we were able to find a solution by looking to the private bank sector.
Our client was offered the full loan amount on a fixed rate, interest only basis. Our team was able to negotiate this based on the fact that their projected future income would allow the client to overpay in coming years, thereby reducing the loan every year over the first five years.
This flexible solution was agreeable on both sides and our client’s case proceeded successfully to completion on their large loan.

Overall cost for comparison 2.80% APRC representative variable based on 60 monthly payments at a fixed rate of 2.79% followed by 180 monthly payments at the lenders variable rate, currently 2.59%. Total amount to be repaid £2,516,866.38. As the mortgage rate is not fixed for the duration of the loan this amount is illustrative and may be vary in particular as a result of variations in interest rate.
Because part of the loan is a variable interest rate loan, the actual APRC could be different from this APRC if the interest rate for your loan changes. For example, if the interest rate rose to 7.84%, the APRC could increase to 8.30%.
