Towry Law in benefits deal with Asda staff

Towry Law is extending its presence in the emp-loyee benefits market with a deal to provide advice to staff of the Asda supermarket chain.

Towry will offer a no-cost initial consultation and factfind meeting as part of their employee benefits package to all Asda&#39s 116,000 employees.

Employees will have access to an independent mortgage advice or review service at a discounted rate, with the option of fee or commissionbased advice.

The Asda deal means Towry now offers employee benefits packages to 25 per cent of FTSE 100 companies.

Towry Law national dev-elopment director David Currier says: “Towry Law has been quietly expanding its business to business operation within the employee benefits market.

“Our advisers will be helping Asda employees to manage their financial aff-airs across a wide range of products at appointments for face-to-face meetings either at home or at work.”

Asda reward manager Kirsty McElligott says: “The independent financial advice service from Towry Law complements our existing range of benefits and covers a wide range of products and services.

“I believe the interest shown in this by our colleagues will be high.”
