Provide debt advice, brokers urged

Brokers should provide debt advice now to bolster their business in the future, a company director says.

John Lukanik, director of Stafford-based Capricorn Mortgages, says he began offering debt advice to clients in January and has since had to open Capricorn Debt Management to cope with the increased demand for his services.

Lukanik says other brokers should do the same as it would provide additional income and also create clients for life.

He says: “There are plenty of opportunities for brokers to boost earnings and help clients manage their money. Those who help consumers in the tough times will be remem-bered by them in the good times.”
