About Us

At Tercos Financial, our service is very much based around what’s best for you, not us. You see, financial advice is our specialist subject and we pride ourselves in providing a personal service that is totally tailored to your needs.

The team is made up of myself, Chris Pinkney and my wife, Karen who provides valuable support in the smooth operation of the Tercos Financial business.

Having over 30 years in the Financial Services Industry we relocated home to Cleethorpes in May 2011 and opened up our office in Grimsby having previously been in Croydon since Nov 1999.
Despite relocating we're still looking to service and expand our client base in London and Croydon.
Specialties: We specialise in Equity Release, Mortgages, Protection (life cover critical illness income protection).
As specialists in later life lending we also advise on Equity Release, both Lifetime Mortgages and Reversion schemes as well as Retirement Interest Only mortgages.

Whilst we are small enough to provide that ‘personal touch’, as we are members of TenetConnect, one of the largest adviser groups in the UK, you can expect the support and expertise that this relationship and backing brings. We understand you may not have heard of TenetConnect, but here are a few facts that will help give you peace of mind that you’re in safe hands.
