Ballast enters strategic alliance with First Class Accounts

National financial services provider Ballast has announced a further expansion - this time, via a strategic alliance with First Class Accounts.

The company said it would partner First Class Accounts in a formal strategic alliance that would see Ballast provide its full financial services offering to all First Class Accounts bookkeepers and their clients.

Commenting on the agreement, Ballast general manager Frank Paratore said Ballast welcomed First Class Accounts' bookkeepers to the new arrangement.

"We are delighted to be adding a new financial services dimension to all First Class Account franchisees and their business through not only our full service lending and aggregation platform but our complete financial services offering," he said.
