National advice firm Wren Sterling has signed a deal with Darlington Building Society to offer in-branch advice.

Three full-time advisers will work across ten branches, meaning Wren Sterling now provides advice at over 100 branches across building societies.

Wren Sterling commercial director Paul Chafer says: “As we have advisers nationwide, we’re well-positioned to work with organisations that are being asked for advice, but cannot necessarily provide it – like building societies, employers and accountancy networks.”

Darlington Building Society chief executive Colin Fyfe says: “Wren Sterling’s advisers are able to recommend products from the whole of market which is important to us as we want to provide our membership with a first class service in terms of independent financial advice.”
