MGM Advantage appoints new head of marketing

MGM Advantage has appointed Lynsay Dickinson as its new head of marketing.

She joins the firm from Prudential and will report in to Aston Goodey, sales and marketing director. Dickinson was previously managing public relations for Prudential’s Annuities and Lifetime Mortgage products division. She has also worked as senior marketing manager for the annuities arm of Prudential’s business.

Goodey says: “She joins a team united in the belief that people are not getting the best deal they deserve when they retire. Consumers need good advice, especially now that times are tougher. MGM Advantage intends to play a vital role in making people aware of the need to shop around and seek independent financial advice so they can make the most of their pension pot”.


To lend or not to lend – is that the question?

I am tempted to wonder if we’ll need a Minister for Mortgages alongside the Minister for the City if the “stakes in banks” plan actually has to be implemented. Heavyweight HSBC and the safer than houses Santander can probably do it on their own. But others will almost certainly need to call on the Government.
