Lighthouse secures teachers’ union advice referral contract


National advice firm Lighthouse has agreed a deal to become the preferred adviser for members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.

The contract will run for three years and means Lighthouse will provide savings, investments, pensions, protection and mortgage advice to up to 170,000 union members. These include headteachers, teachers, lecturers and support staff.

Lighthouse already has a number of partnership with large trade unions including Unison, Unite and the Association of School and College Leaders.

Lighthouse chief executive Malcolm Streatfield says: “The board is delighted that we have secured this partnership with ATL.

“We look forward to developing our relationship over the coming years and working closely with ATL members to assist them with their financial planning requirements. The board remains committed to increasing our affinity partnerships throughout the UK.”
