A Chorley-based branch of national advisory group Perspective Financial has agreed to offer financial advice to members of Chorley Building Society.
Perspective's Shirebrook Wealth Management will provide Chorley Building Society members with access to whole of market advice.
As part of the service, members of Chorley Building Society will be able to speak to a financial adviser in branch, at any branch, or arrange for a home visit.
Chorley Building Society offers savings, mortgages and insurance products across three branches in Chorley and Leyland. Shirebrook will support this by offering advice around investments, retirement planning, protection and tax planning.
Managing director at Shirebrook Wealth Management, Martin Sumner said: "We have worked with Chorley Building Society for a number of years and have now jointly decided that their members will benefit from a more formal arrangement.
"The Retail Distribution Review (RDR) has been introduced to ensure clients of financial advisers are offered a transparent, fair and consistent charging system.
"In light of these changes, many high-street banks are distancing themselves from providing customers with advice so it is refreshing that Chorley Building Society isn't shying away from the best interests of its members."
