PRIMIS adds Shepherds Friendly to full panel
PRIMIS Mortgage Network has added protection specialist Shepherds Friendly to its full panel.
Advisers associated with PRIMIS and their clients will now benefit from the protection specialist’s reviewable medical exclusions, day one protection, rehabilitation services and interactive underwriting.
In addition, Shepherds Friendly offers guaranteed acceptance over-50s life insurance with an added £300 funeral benefit option, which is now available to clients of PRIMIS advisers.
Vikki Jefferies, proposition director at PRIMIS Mortgage Network, said: “Income protection and over-50s life insurance are becoming increasingly important parts of consumers’ financial planning and advisers play a key role in this.
“However, we understand that protection can be a tricky field to navigate for brokers. By extending our partnership with Shepherds Friendly, all of our advisers will now be able to benefit from a more varied protection offering and choice of support services, in order to secure the necessary cover for more of their clients.
“We are thrilled to bring the skills and expertise of the Shepherds Friendly team onto the full panel and look forward to more success alongside them in the future.”
Alex Fallowes, head of sales at Shepherds Friendly, added: “We’ve worked closely with intermediaries for many years and believe we have developed a clear understanding of how we can best assist advisers with tailored services, designed to support and protect their customers.
“As such, we are thrilled to be joining the PRIMIS panel so that more of the network’s advisers can access Shepherds Friendly’s support services and product offering for their customers.”
