Sesame launches hub to help advisers during pandemic

Sesame Bankhall Group has launched a support hub to help advisers continue to trade during the coronavirus pandemic.

The hub, which provides advisers with a range of information and tools, has been designed to help support members of the Sesame network, PMS Mortgage Club and Bankhall, as well as the wider financial services community.

It provides information on personal wellbeing to help advisers stay physically and mentally healthy, on "business wellbeing" to help advice firms continue to operate, and on market news.

John Cowan, executive chairman of Sesame Bankhall Group, said: "The coronavirus pandemic is an economic and social crisis beyond the scale any of us has witnessed in our lifetime.

"As a profession we need to work together in these unprecedented times and rise to the challenge in front of us.

"SBG is committed to championing the role of the adviser and helping firms to assist their clients, as our profession assesses the gravity of what’s emerging as a result of Covid-19.

"Our new hub will give advisers the key updates, practical tools and resources they need – all in one place. It will help firms to stay safe and stay in touch with their clients through this challenging time."

The hub also provides links to other organisations offering information and resources advisers can access to help them through this period.
