Sesame Network has expanded its general insurance (GI) offering for member firms with the addition of Uinsure.
Operating exclusively through mortgage brokers and IFAs, Uinsure offers range of GI products, including buildings and contents, buy-to-let, non-standard, commercial, along with accident, sickness and unemployment insurance.
Sesame member firms can now choose Uinsure or Paymentshield for their GI business. These two companies provide financial advisers and their customers with access to a wide range of competitively-priced GI products underwritten by the UK’s leading insurance brands. In addition, Sesame members also have access to GI provider CETA for specialist household insurance.
Jeff Woods, business development director at 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.
“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, added: “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.
“This partnership marks another major achievement for Uinsure in what is shaping up to be a fantastic year for the company. We’re experiencing phenomenal growth at present and have many more exciting developments on the horizon. 2018 is set to be a defining year for Uinsure.”
