Webline, the UK's first provider of online comparative quotes to ORIGO standard, today announced that it has just passed the 5 million mark for comparative quotations to IFAs, following a record year for growth.
Webline (www.webline.co.uk) was established in 1995 by Paul Holland, a fully qualified IFA and the managing director and founder of the company.
Holland says: “In the past year, we have seen a record demand for online comparative quotes from both our network and independent adviser firms. We have also received some stunning feedback from providers, which indicates that, excluding 'The Exchange', we provide over four times as many quotes as all the other online quotes providers and portals added together. Next year we have some big plans to extend our services even further and ensure that we are no longer the 'best kept industry secret', but a major name and a serious force to be reckoned with.”
As well as providing online quotes direct to IFA firms, Webline is the largest provider of comparative quotes to clients of financial advisers, with 6000 consumers per month getting a quote via a Webline IFA's website. 12 life providers and 7 bond providers are currently on the Webline service, including Standard Life, Norwich Union, Prudential, Swiss Life, Scottish Equitable and many more.
