Chorley firm to offer advice in building society branches

National advisory firm Perspective Financial Group has partnered its Chorley-based member IFA Shirebrook Wealth Management with Chorley Building Society to offer its members in-branch, whole-of-market advice.

As part of the agreement, members of Chorley Building Society will be able to speak to an adviser in-branch at any of its three branches, or arrange a home visit.

Martin Sumner, managing director at Shirebrook Wealth Management and pictured standing to the left, said: “We have worked with the society for a number of years and have now jointly decided that their members will benefit from a more formal arrangement.

“The [Retail Distribution Review] has been introduced to ensure clients of financial advisers are offered a transparent, fair and consistent charging system; are clear about the service they receive and receive advice from highly qualified professionals.

“In light of these changes, many high-street banks are distancing themselves from providing customers with advice so it is refreshing that Chorley Building Society isn’t shying away from the best interests of its members.”
