Property group joins Openwork Partnership

Andrews Property Group has joined The Openwork Partnership, as it looks to boost its mortgage business and advice offering to clients.

Andrews has 47 offices throughout the south of England and is hopeful that the collaboration will garner additional opportunities to forge relationships with clients.

The Openwork Partnership is one of the UK’s largest financial services networks with 4,200 financial advisers, including more than 2,500 mortgage and protection specialists.

In the mortgage sector The Openwork Partnership operates a panel of over 50 lenders for mortgages and is among the top three networks for almost all the major mortgage providers.

Paul Bumford, chief operating officer at Andrews, said: “We chose The Openwork Partnership because of their award-winning mortgage proposition as well as the strong cultural fit between the businesses.

“Offering a wider choice of solutions to our clients is important to Andrews and we look forward to working with everyone across the network as we expand our advice offering to new and existing clients looking for support across mortgages, protection and wealth.”

John Cupis, managing director of mortgages and protection at The Openwork Partnership, added: “We would like to welcome everyone at Andrews and their business partners to Openwork and look forward to helping them to deliver on their ambitions plans over the coming months and years.”

In March, The Openwork Partnership saw mortgage completions hit £19bn.

Last week FTAdviser reported that the network will be reintroducing monthly performance tables from May, showing levels of business activity for its network firms, after withdrawing previous tables in 2019.
