Lighthouse teams up with Mortgage Intelligence

Mortgage Intelligence will now offer Lighthouse Group IFAs a mortgage help desk and enhanced procuration fees.

Lighthouse advisers will continue to receive regulatory, back office and business support from Lighthouse, with Mortgage Intelligence providing a centralised hub of product and procuration fee information.
