Openwork saw 100 advisers join the network during the lockdown period taking its total number to 4,000.

The expansion has come in the mortgage and protection parts of the business whilst 69 new candidates joined the Academy programme.

Philip Howell, chief executive of Openwork, said: “Thanks to tireless and determined efforts of everyone at Openwork, we have in the last 100 days been able to quickly mobilise our entire network to ensure that advisers were able to more effectively overcome the challenges and, at the same time, maintain and increase dialogue with clients.

“The threat remains but as lockdown measures are slowly eased across the UK, it is important that we not only reflect on the past 100 days but also begin to look forward, ensuring that we can continue to work together to support clients up and down the country who continue to rely on the support, guidance and reassurance of the very personal and expert advice that characterises our business.”
