The Money Group (TMG) has rebranded Access 4 Finance to Access Money – bringing it in line with the other companies within the Group.

As part of the restructure Scott Thorpe (pictured) will step aside and be replaced by Andy Marsh.

Marsh has over 25 years of experience working within the specialist and second charge sector, most recently at Believe, and has been brought in to expand the B2B side of the business as well as developing a direct to consumer arm.

Second wave of predictions

Thorpe will stay on in a consulting role and help with the handover of all existing broker relationships.

Marsh said: “I am delighted to join up with the Money Group. I had a number of different offers to consider but none of them gave me the ability to build my own business within a framework of like-minded people.

“Having also previously worked alongside Scott it was a perfect opportunity for all parties.

“I look forward to putting my own identity on the brand and building on the foundations that Scott has already put in place.”

Thorpe added: “As soon as I spoke to Andy, I knew we could not miss this opportunity to work together again. Andy’s knowledge on second charges is second to none so it makes sense to bring him back into the fold.

“He is hungry for success, so logically giving him an existing business that he can help shape and grow made it a very easy decision.

“I needed to free up my own time as we have some exciting plans for TMG for 2021. I have thoroughly enjoyed the second charge market and will still be around the Access Money office to support Andy and the brokers.

“But what we are looking to launch next year could be game-changing for the industry and the broker and I need to commit all my time to getting that right.”
