A new financial services company has launched in York focusing on mortgages and insurance protection.

MAPIO Financial Ltd is founded by Liz Murdie and Scott Anscomb, who have been in the mortgage business for a combined 30 years. They saw a gap in the market for a family focused company providing advice on mortgages, plus what they see as vital insurance protection.


MAPIO, which stands for Mortgages and Protection In One, aims to make mortgages easy, by daily checking the thousands on offer to find their customers the best deal.

The team explains the jargon, and help people protect what matters, by providing the right insurance for customers.

MAPIO is looking to build relationships with customers, advising and facilitating their mortgage and insurance needs throughout their lives. It’s about loyalty and longevity, based on trust and professionalism.

Impartial advice

Julie Taylor
Experienced mortgage and protection advisors Julie Taylor, who has been a mortgage broker for over 12 years in York, and John Moore with 40 years in the business, will share their expertise with customers who are either first time buyers, families moving home, or home owners looking to improve their current deal or insurance protection.

Scott Anscomb, who owns sister company, Your Move Anscombs on Colliergate in the centre of York where MAPIO is based, is an expert on the housing market in York and the surrounding area, and considers that mortgages and the right insurances should go hand in hand.

Key to Scott and business partner Liz is the impartial advice, without affiliation to any specific provider, which they see as leading to long term ‘financial relationships’ with their clients thanks to MAPIO’s excellence in service.


The companies will be run independently of each other. Liz said: “Mortgage deals change daily and there are usually thousands of mortgages to choose from. Julie or John will take an independent look at customers’ income and outgoings and advise on what would work best.”

She added:

  • Our key goal is to be approachable, trustworthy and a pleasure to deal with and we hope to look after you throughout your financial life.

    We’re looking to grow our business and we see a great future ahead, but we will not lose our hands-on and friendly approach to our customers to ensure they are well looked after financially.
