I'm CAS, with a network now and have been a mortgage (inc lifetime) & protection adviser for around 15 years. I have my own shop front/office, turnover around £110k, good with compliance but want to join a DA firm, maybe as a trading style so that I can keep my own brand. I have not been removed from any lender panels and have no complaints but I just yearn for a different way of working.
To consider this the DA firm would need to be large enough to have access to the lender market's new entrants, a bit like a network but on a more personal level.
I'm sure there must be plenty out there, please let me know if you're interested in talking.
