Meet The Team: Benson Cheng

Updated: Aug 30, 2022

We recently caught up with the newest member of the Cedar Crest team: Benson Cheng. Based in our Hong Kong office, Benson is a talented mortgage consultant who's committed to providing unbiased mortgage advice to English and Cantonese speaking individuals in Hong Kong and beyond.

In our latest interview with Benson, he shares more on his personal and professional motivations as well as his interests outside of work.

Welcome onboard Benson Cheng!


What led you to choose this profession?

Benson Cheng:

I have over six years of experience working as a mortgage adviser in the property industry overseas. I have extensive knowledge of the property market in the United Kingdom, Australia and the South East Asia.

Whilst working in the industry I came to the realisation that a large number of High-Net-Worth Individuals seek investment opportunities outside of Hong Kong. However, many of these clients experience challenges due to a scarcity of information on the property market they are interested in and taxation rules, as well as the perceived notion that there's a lack of mortgage options as an Expat or International Investor.

I have also recently witnessed an influx of individuals seeking to invest in the UK property market for a variety of reasons. Below are a few of the most common ones:

  • Individuals looking for investment opportunities in stable markets like the UK

  • Given the UK's great educational system, many are looking to buy a property for their child (en) whilst they go to university in the UK

  • Many seeking to immigrate to the United Kingdom

Due to all these factors and the increasing demand in UK property, I knew I could help clients by equipping them with the right market information and solutions that would enable them to make better property investment decisions.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Benson Cheng:

My favourite part of the job as mortgage adviser is being able to guide clients throughout the entire mortgage process from start to finish. It genuinely makes me happy seeing a client acquire their dream property thanks to my guidance and support.


Who You Most Admire?

Benson Cheng:

One of the people that I most admire is the world-renowned entrepreneur and extremely successful businessman Steve Jobs. He's a legend!


What are you most passionate about?

Benson Cheng:

I am extremely knowledge driven and I always seek to learn about new developing technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrencies, news and global events, and anything related with tech.

I constantly follow the news and market trends at both a local and global level so I can share that information with clients and provide better and more relevant solutions to them.

If you weren’t doing this job, what would you be doing?

Benson Cheng:

If I had to select a different field or profession, I would probably have to say a job in Banking, Cryptocurrencies or blockchain.


Why did you chose to work for Cedar Crest?

Benson Cheng:

Cedar Crest is a UK based firm that’s regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

As a distinguished mortgage advice firm, Cedar Crest specialises in unbiased advice and working with a wide range of lenders to provide more options to clients.

As such, Cedar Crest has been rapidly expanding, both locally and internationally, presenting itself as a defined leader in the industry, promising continual growth.

I believe that my personal qualities, as well as my professional and language skills would be highly relevant for the firm and I am looking forward to taking on new challenges that will help me develop into a better mortgage consultant.


What are your future aspirations?

Build my knowledge, gain more experience, and continue to grow my network within the property industry. My goal is to build a closer relationship with Hong Kong based property agencies to identify new avenues for growth for the company.


What are your hobbies outside of work?

Benson Cheng:

I enjoy spending time outdoors and connecting with nature. In fact, one of my favourite outdoor activities is fishing.
