Sesame, PMS and Bankhall members will be able to access Assurant Intermediary’s full range of general insurance products including buildings and contents, landlords’ let property, income protection and accident, sickness and unemployment cover.

Commenting Roger Crocker, head of protection, GI and technology at PMS, said: “We recognise that selling general insurance products to clients not only forms an important part of the overall service our members provide, but also helps them diversify their overall proposition which has become increasingly important over the past few years.

“We have undertaken a thorough review of the market in order to give our members access to quality products that give their clients real choice and value for money, and we are delighted to appoint Assurant Intermediary to our GI panel. Assurant Intermediary has a strong track record of delivering outstanding service not only to intermediaries but, more importantly, to their clients making a claim.”

Nigel Payne, managing director, Assurant Intermediary, added: “Sesame is the largest adviser network in the UK, PMS the largest mortgage distributor and Bankhall the largest supplier of services to directly authorised intermediaries. It is regarded as one of the most professional groups in the UK intermediary space, and so we are naturally delighted to be working with all three brands.

“We know how important choice and competitiveness is to intermediaries. We are constantly looking to build upon our existing range of products to ensure we continue to deliver both the quality of products they want, and also deliver the choice they are looking to give their clients so they can purchase the most appropriate cover depending on their needs and budgets.”
