What’s Next with Abba Newbery

In this episode, we chat with one of Active’s clients – Abba Newbery CMO of Habito.

We asked Abba to tell us why Habito is the ‘What’s Next’ of Mortgage Broker/Provider in the UK. The UK mortgage industry is archaic, and possibly even broken when we consider how people are now living their lives. People who are self-employed or have non-linear careers struggle to find mortgages that fit them, Habito was founded to challenge the old ways. Abba explains the ‘B Corp’ accreditation that Habito holds and how it aligns with Habito’s mission to help people find a home, a home that is or has the potential to be environmentally sound, and a part of an integrated community.
