National advice firm launches mortgage arm

CWB Group, the national financial planning company, has launched a mortgage broking business.

ReSource Mortgages, headed by Alan Holms, will offer independent mortgage and protecton advice.

Mr Holmes, who describes himself as a “career mortgage specialist”, has previously worked for Lloyds Banking Group and Barclays.

“ReSource is a totally independent mortgage and protection broking firm, meaning we have access to the whole of the market and associated products. This enables us to get the very best deals for our clients,’ he said.

The new business will be based in Bristol, Simon Hellier, CWB and ReSource group managing director said.

“We already provide specialist financial advice to our clients, so the creation of ReSource Mortgages is a logical addition to our group.

"As well as helping our clients create and protect their wealth, we can now ensure they receive the right mortgage solutions so their liabilities get the same attention to detail and high levels of service,” he added.

He said that his firm had chosen to appoint “career mortgage specialists” such as Mr Holmes, rather than authorising existing financial advisers to provide mortgage advice.

“This will ensure that our clients receive the highest possible levels of service and specialist advice, which they already receive from our other CWB Group companies,” he said.
