Jon Penberthy-Smith, Customer Director at The Money Advice Service, commented: "We are very pleased to have renewed this contract with Lighthouse, as this will enable our employees to continue to access financial planning assistance across a broad range of financial topics and will help them to make the most of their own financial planning opportunities".

Malcolm Streatfield, Chief Executive Officer of Lighthouse, commented: "The Board is delighted that we have renewed this partnership with The Money Advice Service. We look forward to further developing our relationship over the coming months and working closely with Money Advice Service employees, who themselves are dedicated to helping others, and to assisting them with their overall financial planning requirements.
