“Helping people in complex financial situations”

Mike Coates - Managing Director

When I founded Commercial Expert in 2008, I wanted to create a company that was recognised in the industry. I honestly believe that’s what we have done.

My proudest moment with the company was becoming FCA regulated in 2015. It might sound a bit sad, but it means we stand tall and prove that our function and process are robust. I am very proud of the team and what we achieve, the brand, and our work. I love it – it’s my hobby (along with enjoying quality food and drink). If I had to describe the Commercial Expert team in one word, it would be tenacious. We get the job done. We are not order takers; we are skilled commercial financial advisers, and we care (maybe too much at times). We have a robust system, an excellent team, and we offer sensible and solid advice.
