PRIMIS has added Scottish Widows to its protection panel.
The move provides members of the PRIMIS network with immediate access to a range of life and critical illness insurance products.
Customers will also have access to Scottish Widows Care, with support provided by RedArc, who have over 20 years of experience supporting people and their families when they are at their most vulnerable.
The announcement follows several recent additions to the PRIMIS and PTFS protection and general insurance panels, including British Friendly, Guardian Financial Services and Uinsure.
Steve Berry, protection manager at PRIMIS, said: “Protection is an incredibly important element of the advice process and one that should not be missed. The PRIMIS and PTFS motto is ‘every pound of lending is a pound that needs protecting’ – we believe that every time a broker sees or interacts with a client, they should be thinking about protection.
“We are therefore delighted to be launching with a provider that is at the forefront of the market, providing leading underwriting services to customers, all the while ensuring they are covered adequately and appropriately. This will ensure our brokers have access to an extensive range of products and the accompanying knowledge to better serve customers in this space.”
Gillian Sephton, head of protection distribution at Scottish Widows, added: “We’re absolutely delighted to be joining the PRIMIS protection panel. At Scottish Widows our ambition is for every family to be able to access protection insurance which can only be achieved through quality advice from advisers.
“We understand how important it is for advisers and clients to be offered cover with clear, easy to understand products and look forward to working with PRIMIS.”
