Networks HLPartnership and Mortgage Support Network have hired five compliance officers to work with members across the UK.
Working from the Leicester office, they will provide further resource for file checking and audit and support the membership processing team who are handling record numbers of applications from firms and individuals wishing to join the network.
Gavin Earnshaw, compliance director, said: “Despite the external uncertainty caused by Brexit, we are confident in planning further compliance recruitment through Q1 as applications for membership are particularly strong and the pipeline for new business is very healthy.
“We are committed to providing the structure and support services that advisers, who specialise in mortgages and protection, need.
“Our success stems from recognising that all advisers are not the same. Feedback we get from new members suggests that mortgage and protection advisers tend to be treated as the poor relations in networks which cater for other disciplines such as pensions and investment specialists.
“This reinforces our belief that building a natural home for mortgage and protection specialists creates a sound business platform, both now and in the future.”
