Censeo Financial is a multi-award winning retail financial services company specialising in arranging mortgages for affordable homes. It was created 10 years ago to provide a mortgage advice service tailored to meet the specific needs of both prospective purchasers and developers of affordable homes. Because of its wealth of experience with the public and private sectors, Censeo has increased its client base from one housing association to thirty-four. Last year we helped over a thousand people buy a home of their own across a hundred different developments.

We continue to work closely with a wide range of banks and building societies to develop better and more affordable mortgage products for prospective affordable home owners and are always looking at how we can improve what we do for all stakeholders. We recognise that they are used to managing their lives in a frictionless way, through the click of a button (be it shopping, banking or social media) so we are focussing on the use of technology and the digital environment to deliver an even better and fulfilling service.

Censeo’s innovative approach in retail financial services together with its collaborative working culture with housing associations has enabled people to realise their aspiration of buying a home of their own.
