Our Expert Team

Mike Parker


Experienced financial services manager Mike founded AMW in 2006, determined to prove the rest of the industry wrong. Certified by the Institute of Financial Services in Mortgage Advice and Practice and with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, he believed that is was possible to deliver complex and non- standard mortgage and protection solutions. And, over the past 10 years he has proved it again and again. Starting out as an independent consultant, Mike now employs a team of experts and specialists, all determined to ensure clients enjoy the best possible service, and personal, ethical mortgage and protection advice. It’s fair to say AMW is achieving what Mike first set out to do, with proof of this being the quantity of clients who keep coming back, and recommending Mike and the team to their friends and family.
