Mortgage Advice Bureau and Charles Cameron & Associates have announced a new employee mortgage advice service.
The partnership will see Charles Cameron & Associates deliver employee mortgage advice services to HR and benefits teams, with Mortgage Advice Bureau’s (MAB) UK adviser network to offer a financial wellness package that is inclusive of all industry sectors, UK regions and employee demographics.
The proposition is designed exclusively for large public and private sector employers with widespread UK-based staff. The service delivered will be free of charge to both the employee and employer and mainly telephone based, with MAB having the capability to offer screen to screen advice or face to face if required.
Charles Cameron & Associates works with over 160 corporate partners and a client base of over 220,000 employees, offering a bespoke service, delivering online and workplace-based education sessions, online information resources, face to face advice meetings and mortgage application support services.
Mortgage Advice Bureau has over 1,350 advisers covering every UK postcode with face to face advice, supported by six telephone hubs, to deliver the only omni channel solution for customers and national lead sources.
Simon Nimmo, owner of Charles Cameron & Associates, said: “We at Charles Cameron are very excited to be partnering with MAB, allowing us to deliver Free Mortgage Broking as an employee benefit to an even broader range of companies. Our growth over the past 15 years is all down to great customer service and advice, both traits that are abundant in the team at MAB.
“As our reputation has spread, a broad range of companies with operations across the UK have asked us to mirror our offering nationally. This JV with MAB will allow us to serve them wherever their employees are, regardless of sector size or location.
“The existing Charles Cameron bespoke Financial Wellbeing service will remain unchanged for existing and potential partners with London-centric HQs, but we are delighted to also be able to now extend the service to every company in the UK looking to offer their staff financial wellbeing provision through free mortgage advice.”
Peter Brodnicki (pictured), CEO of Mortgage Advice Bureau, said: “This new partnership between Charles Cameron and MAB is a huge opportunity for both companies. Simon Nimmo has grown an outstanding business with an unrivalled reputation in the employee mortgage advice sector, and in partnership with MAB he will now be able to extend his market leading proposition across the UK to a far larger and more diverse audience.
“The response has already been tremendous, and combining the strengths and vision of both firms, including very best of telephone advice, face to face and digital, is a truly exciting prospect for all involved.”
