Milecross Financial is offering its services through YBS' agencies in Wigan, Wilmslow and Littleborough.
Milecross Financial has expanded its presence across the North West, offering its services through Yorkshire Building Society’s (YBS) agencies in Wigan, Wilmslow and Littleborough, along with a regional head office in Heywood.
The opening of locations in the North West throughout 2021 has already created 17 new roles.
New and existing YBS customers can use the agencies in a similar way to a traditional YBS branch, and have the ability to transact on existing savings accounts and access all the standard YBS offerings, including opening new accounts.
Paul Dalzell, chief executive of Milecross, said: “We are delighted to begin our journey with Yorkshire Building Society.
"With a background that spans more than a century, YBS shares core values with Milecross of long term sustainability, strong customer focus, colleagues who are valued and having a positive engagement with local communities.
“The trio of agencies gives us a wider reach, to provide our services and support to a wider community, with each agency offering the YBS range and facilities along with the other services Milecross offer including investment and mortgages from other providers with financial advisers now based in each location.
"This is just the beginning of wider expansion plans for Milecross, and we are excited to bring our skills and experience to the area through our unique business model which has helped us achieve great success in Northern Ireland.”
Mark McBride, regional manager of Milecross, added: “The agencies in Wilmslow and Littlebrough are well established, and we look forward to working in the communities and offering them financial advice services Milecross can bring in addition to the standard YBS offering.
"With the addition of the new Wigan Agency location opened in May we are pleased to be able to support even more customers in Greater Manchester.
"We are also proud to be able to create new employment for the area.
"This is an exciting period for Milecross and one that will present many growth opportunities in the years that follow.”
