He will be based at the firm’s Edinburgh flagship office in Multrees Walk and his new role will see him take on overall responsibility for all mortgage operations and mortgage advisers across 19 offices.

Greig is CEMAP qualified and has developed an extensive knowledge of the mortgage and protection market during his career, which has also included senior positions with HSBC.

He has undertaken a range of leadership roles including in premium relationship banking, mortgage advice and protection, as well as having responsibility for training and key projects.

Greig’s appointment reflects the significant growth of the firm’s financial services offering, including an increase in the number of professional advisers and the opening of new branches over the last few years.

Allan Gardner, Financial Services Director, Aberdein Considine said: “Greig joins us at an incredibly important time, both for our clients and the wider mortgage industry, and we’re delighted to have someone of his calibre at Aberdein Considine.

As the market begins to open up again, especially in the area of 90% mortgages, over the next few months we are likely to see an increase in those looking for help to buy their dream homes as well as the number of mortgage deals to choose from.”

Greig added: “Getting a mortgage and buying a new home are two of the biggest decisions anyone will make and getting the right independent advice is vital before you make any commitment.

I’ll be working closely with my estate agency and legal colleagues to ensure individuals and families across the country have access to the best professional advice when they need it.”
