April 19, 2012 - PRLog -- Lee and Samantha, who were both still in their 20’s when the company was founded, decided that despite the looming recession, it was an ideal time to launch a very different offering, which should become the benchmark for the industry.

Cooper Associates’ courage has paid off, and the company has now amassed over 3,000 clients across the South West with its unique approach to providing mortgages, life insurance, and business protection. The company’s subsidiary, Cooper Associates Wealth Management Ltd, provides advice on pensions, investments, portfolio management and trust and estate planning.

Last year, the company further boosted its customer base by acquiring both the Taunton and Yeovil branches of The Mortgage Shop and it is now one of the fastest growing mortgage advisory firms in the country.  

Samantha Cooper, director of the mortgage and insurance arm of the business, attributes the businesses’ success largely to the driving ambition to set totally new standards of customer service within the mortgage industry – a goal which she believes they have achieved.  

Samantha says, “The key factors in our growth have been the quality of our staff, the wide range of options we can offer because we are totally independent, and our core principle that every client should be treated as our only client to whom we seek to provide an exceptional service based on knowledge, professionalism and integrity.”

Cooper Associates’ expansion continues with the development of its pilot offices in Exeter and Bristol, both of which are expected to expand rapidly in 2012/2013.

Cooper Associates specialises in providing independent mortgage advice and independent insurance advice to both individuals and companies. For more information, please call 01823 273880 or email

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Cooper Associates do not normally charge a fee as it is usually paid by the lender. However, customers have the option to pay Cooper Associates a fee and receive any commission paid by the lender. The precise amount will depend upon the individual’s circumstances but it is estimated it will be 1 per cent of the amount borrowed.
