The Nottingham launches financial planning arm
The Nottingham has announced plans to provide pensions, investments, and insurance products in its 32 branches across the East Midlands.
Branch-based financial advisers will advise customers on the best products to meet their needs.
The building society said the new products are part of its plans to expand and evolve, and will help it to counter a “personal finance black hole” in the region.
“We’re evolving the Society so that it continues to meet the needs of existing and new customers – without compromising our reputation for offering advice and products that cater for real needs and add real value,” said Lorraine Giddings, head of The Nottingham’s branch network.
“We’ve spent the last two years developing The Nottingham so it is increasingly able to meet the needs of local people – and developing a new financial planning arm is a major strategic development for us that ensures the Society keeps in step with the people that matter most to us.”
Financial services firm m2 financial will partner The Nottingham in its new venture.
A spokesperson for m2 said the firm is “delighted” to have been chosen to work with the building society.
