Adele Forbes has been appointed as a director of West Yorkshire Money – London Money’s latest joint regional partnership.
With the arrival of Forbes West Yorkshire Money is now able to give regulated first and second charge advices as well as other regulated activities including protection.
West Yorkshire Money will sit alongside its sister company South Yorkshire Money and the pair will work together to grow their brands presence in Yorkshire.
Martin Stewart, director of London Money, said: “I am delighted that Adele has chosen to partner with the ever expanding Money Group.
“She is a former colleague of Danny and Michelle’s who now run South Yorkshire Money and she has watched their brand expand and develop and was genuinely excited to join with us and become part of our growth story.
“Adele brings great energy, drive and ambition and now is the perfect time for her to step out and build her own business with the infinite support that the Money Group can offer. We have no issue with looking for and working with fellow disruptors and we are confident that Adele will fit that role.”
Forbes added: “I have watched with interest the work that Danny and Michelle have been doing with their brand and I was keen to have my own stake in a business that felt part of something bigger and was clearly going places.
“I wanted this move to be my last move in the mortgage industry. I took great care to ensure that I was making the right decision and looked at many different models and options.
“But in the end it was not a difficult choice as no one was offering me a ready made brand and control of my own business. The icing on the cake was that all this came at zero cost to me and with no one interfering with my income.
“I look forward to continue to making a difference for my clients but now also making a difference to the industry as a whole”
