BDS adds Halifax GI to panel

Hampshire based packager and network, BDS Mortgage Group has appointed
Halifax GI to its general insurance panel.

Halifax is one of the largest general insurance providers within the UK,
with over 1.3 million customers.

Bob Hope, sales and marketing director of BDS Mortgage Group, says: “I’m
delighted that Halifax GI is now part of the BDS GI panel; offering more
choice to our appointed representatives, and ultimately their clients.

“In the current economic climate GI has never been more vital to the
sales process and I know their redundancy cover is generating interest
already. The recent addition of Abbey to our GI panel has proved to be
very popular and business has increased as a result. I’m confident that
Halifax GI will follow suit.”
