The later life lending exec who doesn’t see age as a barrier to borrowing


For this Mortgage Introducer Talk, Simon Meadows meets Leon Diamond, the founder and CEO of LiveMore, a lender that serves the over fifties market. Diamond casts his eye over a career that’s taken him from Australia to the UK, driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and witnessing the problems his older relatives experienced trying to borrow in later life.  “Our oldest borrower is a 99-year-old lady who took out a mortgage,” he says. “We’re very proud of that. We see this area as being quite underserved in the UK, but yet there’s strong demand coming through.”
