BDS teams up with Higos

BDS Mortgage Group has added personal insurance broker Higos to its list of business partners.

Higos has access to 90+ insurers and Lloyds markets and provides a range of GI including non-standard household, let property, commercial and fleet.

It takes introduced business so there is no compliance responsibility for the broker and leads can be submitted and tracked online.
