Britannic Money offers will-writing service to customers

Current account mortgage specialist Britannic Money has launched a new service for its customers, promoting the importance of having an up-to-date will. The new initiative is in conjunction with law firm Chancery Law Group and Britannic Money is offering a free introductory service for its own customers.

Bob Perks, business development manager at Britannic Money, says: “As the innovators of the current account mortgage we offer our customers the ultimate financial planning tool for their home finances. This new initiative provides our customers with an opportunity to protect their assets, a service that offers a real benefit to them.”
