Sesame Network is now offering member firms and their customers general insurance with Uinsure.
Operating exclusively through mortgage brokers and IFAs, Uinsure offers a full suite of GI products, including buildings and contents, buy-to-let, non-standard, commercial and accident, sickness and unemployment insurance.
Jeff Woods, business development director, Sesame, said: “GI is an important element of the wider conversation between advisers and their customers, which addresses all their needs and risks.
“This is something that Sesame is actively encouraging and last year it led to a 37% increase in GI quotes, so we know that GI is increasingly important to our members and the appetite is there.
“We want to build on this, and strengthen our GI offering further, to make it even more competitive for our members and their customers.”
Sesame member firms can now choose Uinsure or Paymentshield for their GI business.
Woods added: “Uinsure is well established as an award-winning GI provider offering advisers quality products through one of the fastest quote and supply systems on the market.
“Our new partnership delivers choice for firms and will create more opportunities for advisers to talk to their customers about their general insurance needs, as part of our drive to continually enhance our service and support for members.”
Simon Taylor, chief executive at Uinsure, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Sesame and its members.
“At Uinsure our focus is always on delivering a proposition that can drastically improve brokers’ businesses and release their potential and it’s an ethos Sesame clearly shares.
“It’s forward thinking proposition complements our own and as such I’m delighted that we will be working together to service the intermediary market.”
