Dynamo is a new online mortgage broker providing free, impartial and quality mortgage advice online and comparing deals from High Street banks and challengers alike. Dynamo prides itself on doing mortgages differently and is rebuilding the entire remortgage process around its customers.

Built together with the UK’s largest mortgage broker Countrywide, Dynamo combines a deep mortgage industry knowledge, insight and relationships, together with Blenheim Chalcot’s record of building disruptive fintech.

Dynamo chief executive Seb McDermott says: “Dynamo’s cutting edge proprietary technology is set to transform the way our mortgage advisers are accustomed to working, saving them time and paperwork and allowing them to focus on delivering a great customer experience.”

Chaired by Blenheim Chalcot Partner and former head of Google UK and Ireland Dan Cobley, Dynamo brings together a team of world class designers, developers, data scientists, financial services experts and business builders.
