Peak Mortgages & Protection says its tune, which went live in late March, has already attracted more than 3,600 views on Facebook – and that is before a video to go with it has even been created.

Rhys Schofield, who set up Peak Mortgages & Protection in 2019, said: “I like to think of Peak as a plucky disruptor in what, let’s be perfectly honest, is a fairly boring industry.

“On the back of that, I thought let’s do something a bit different and shake things up.

“We like to think the tune is positive, high energy and enjoyable, a bit like us when we deliver great customer outcomes.

“And, although we don’t dress like Eighties metalheads, at Peak you won’t find a suit and tie in sight.

The firm, based in Riverside Business Centre, Foundry Lane, Milford, Belper, sees itself as the “Metallica of mortgages”.

And it is now in talks with staff at the University of Derby in the hope some of its animation students will come up with a video to accompany the music.

Mr Schofield, Peak managing director, said: “Hopefully we can get some of the clever tech people at the university to come up with a smashing video, which we’ll then use as an ad for our services.

“It will give the students a platform to showcase their skills and position us as broker that’s anything but boring.”
