Lambeth customers get access to L&G products

Legal & General and Lambeth Building Society are teaming up to give Lambeth&#39s customers access to L&G&#39s protection, long-term savings and investment products.

The partnership will allow the society&#39s customers to buy a raft of savings and investment products from fixed-interest deposits to actively managed Isas, unit trusts and pensions from the combined range of both companies.

Customers applying for a loan from Lambeth will be offered L&G&#39s full range of mortgage protection and repayment plans. Customers can get information and apply via the society&#39s call centre or online at www.lambeth.co.uk.

Customers who want advice on L&G products will be referred to its tied salesforce.

L&G group director UK operations Robin Phipps says: “This arrangement is an endorsement by Lambeth of our highly competitive position in today&#39s financial services market. I am confident that L&G&#39s protection and investment range perfectly complements Lambeth&#39s own product offering.”
