Ingard Financial, the Essex based network, has appointed Solent Mortgage Services to its lending panel.
Nikki Haworth, sales and marketing director at Ingard, says it is always searching for new avenues to provide extra services to its members.
She says: “Choosing SMS not only means we have an instantly recognised and respected industry provider on our panel but the services SMS offer will enhance the ability of our members to make client advice decisions from the widest range of products and services.
“This is good news for customers and good for our members, who are better placed to maximise opportunities to transact business in as many sectors as possible.”
Ian Balfour, chief executive officer of SMS, says: “Ingard demonstrates a philosophy to its business that is in tune with the needs of intermediaries regardless of their regulatory status.”
