Clara is a Mortgage and Protection Insurance Adviser. She is qualified in both CeMAP (Level 3 Certificate in Mortgage and Advice Practice) and CeRER (Certificate in Regulated Equity Release) and worked in the City of London for many years before starting work as a mortgage adviser. After working for a local firm, Clara decided to take the next big step in the mortgage business and Downton Mortgage and Financial Services was born. Before moving into mortgage qualifications, she got a Business Studies degree, specialising in finance and worked in investment banks and consultancy firms in London. Having learned a wide spectrum of knowledge working with clients in the City, the local move to be a mortgage adviser was a natural next step for her. In her spare time Clara loves travelling, dancing, baking and reading books, when not spending time with family and friends.
