Just Mortgages has announced a new link-up with BNI, an organisation that provides business networking opportunities, stating that this will assist its self-employed mortgage advisors.
The new partnership between Just Mortgages and BNI means that those advisors who work with the former on a self-employed basis, in addition to those in the same position at its Just Wealth sister firm, will be able to access greater business support. This will include seminars with useful information about how to grow their advice businesses and a triage service to assist them in identifying networking groups affiliated to BNI that can help their clients.
Just Mortgages self-employed division protection and mortgages chief, Ben Allkins, told Mortgage Solutions that the team-up with BNI would mean that self-employed advisors have the backing they need to build their brands successfully, without having to sacrifice the freedom of working for themselves.
He then stated that:
“By joining BNI, brokers will increase their exposure to like-minded professionals, gain referrals from a professional network and sharpen their networking skills with exclusive member resources.”
BNI national director, Mike Holman, added that those who are members of the organisation had managed to secure revenues of £520 million during the course of the past year. He concluded by saying that BNI welcomes the new crop of self-employed advisors and looks forward to assisting them on the path to success.
Opportunities of this sort following completion of CeMAP training are why a lot of advisors choose to combine working for themselves with being connected to a larger network.
