Lighthouse Group is launching the next stage in the development of its specialist mortgage and protection services.
The offering sees Lighthouse which is an established national IFA launching its own panel of lenders including high street names such as Abbey, Halifax, Nationwide and Northern Rock, and still maintaining a strategic link to The Scottish Provident Mortgage Alliance.
Lighthouse has also appointed two preferred packagers who will provide bespoke services and exclusive products to Lighthouse members.
Other developments include a specialist equity release panel which includes lenders who have committed to working with Lighthouse to help develop and grow this increasingly important market.
Access to an even more extensive range of exclusive products has also been secured through a partnership with Mortgage Intelligence who will provide a helpdesk service.
This will be followed by the launch of commercial lending and personal loan services for members and a series of roadshows planned for early next year to promote the services.
Malcolm Streatfield, chief executive of Lighthouse Group says: Lighthouse is an established IFA Group renowned for its expertise and reputation in the investment and pensions arena. Following last years launch we are now establishing a growing reputation for mortgages and general insurance. This is an evolving market and we aim to stay at the forefront by listening to brokers and tailoring our service so they can offer the best possible solutions.
Mark Evans, director of Field Operations says: A year on from M-Day is a good time to take stock. We are now in a position to build on the strategic partnerships in place to further enhance our offering to mortgage brokers. We are showing the benefit of working with other organisations to offer an extensive and far reaching service for our members.
