The Right Mortgage & Protection Network enters Scotland


The Right Mortgage & Protection Network has opened an office in Scotland.

The new offshoot, Right Mortgage & Protection Network Scotland, will supply all of the services the original network does.

The new arm will be led by TRMPN business consultant Tracey Frain.

Frain was previously an adviser at TRMPN arm Meridian.

The Right Mortgage & Protection Network chief executive Martin Wilson says: “Our Scottish arm is led by Tracey Frain, who as an adviser herself knows the importance of having ongoing support, but more importantly to be recognised as the customer at the heart of our business.”

Frain says: “I would like to thank everyone who supports me at TRM in my role at The Right Mortgage Scotland and the Scottish advisers. Without them I wouldn’t be in the position I am today and thank you all for your continued support. I am looking forward to working more closely with our northern members.”
