Private banks can offer very low private mortgage interest rates, personalised mortgages and bespoke underwriting. They can also move very quickly and produce solutions high street mortgage lenders can't.
By looking at your entire situation, getting to know you as a person and taking the time to understand your plans, private banks offer tailored private mortgage solutions to international high net worth clients.
Private bank mortgages are not all about the interest rate.
Whilst many private banks can offer private mortgages with very low-interest rates to win the best clients, others offer additional benefits: Personal service, quick and efficient application processes, bespoke underwriting and problem solving.
For the best private bank mortgage rates expect to need to bring additional assets (AUM) or to move your banking as part of the deal.
Many, but not all, private banks offer mortgages. Some reserve their lending capacity for their existing customers, some will need sight of a bigger relationship to enable a new mortgage to be advanced whilst others will need you to share the same ethos as the bank to open an account.
Enness are proud to work with a vast number of private banks from all over the world. Access and knowledge is vital.
Usually, a private bank mortgage application will involve a personal meeting with a banker, a full conversation on plans and background plus plenty of information on the borrower's income and assets.
Some private bank lenders need a personal recommendation from an existing account holder whilst others have a minimum income or asset base needed to qualify.
We cut through the mystery and process to directly arrange market-leading private mortgages for our clients made possible through our market position, reputation and experience in this part of the market.
AUM (assets under management) is a core part of the private banking world and is often a prerequisite to securing the best possible terms.
Some private banks require a minimum amount to be invested with them; some require a percentage of the new private mortgage to be placed with them either as custody or to manage. A few private banks operate on the potential of a new client to bring assets and of course, there are plenty of private banks who are happy to lend without needing anything in return.
As with everything else, the amount of AUM needed is often fully negotiable and can be structured in lots of different ways.
We are proud of our private banking relationships and work hard to develop our position and access in this space.
There are a few private banks who only work with a tiny number of brokers and we are always in that set. In fact, some private banks refer their clients to Enness when they are unable to assist.

The UK is home to one of the most liquid, competitive, and complicated mortgage markets in the world.
There are hundreds of mortgage providers who lend in the UK, from major international banks to niche building societies and alternative lenders. Each lender has their own specialisation and position in the market where they excel. They also have lending criteria, interest rates, processes and oddities which are specific to them.
The UK has a considerable number of lending channels. There are regulated mortgages, unregulated mortgages, buy-to-let finance, bridging finance, commercial mortgages and more. It’s easy to see why the lending market is so complicated. The UK’s finance options are plentiful.
There are huge pools of liquidity (some of it incredibly cheap) and you can enjoy flexible lending terms. If you are a foreign national, expat, a high-net-worth individual, are self-employed, have significant assets but relatively low taxable income or anything in between, the UK mortgage market will have an option for you.
