Paymentshield joins Sesame’s premier panel

Paymentshield has secured a place as one of the chosen three providers of general insurance on the Sesame premier panel.

The launch of the panel will bring a new focus to GI sales within Sesame and will support the development of joint GI sales strategies which will benefit Sesame members, Sesame and Paymentshield.

All new brokers registering with Sesame will automatically be given a Paymentshield agency.

Paymentshield will have a direct link from The Key, Sesame’s chosen mortgage point of sale system, to Paymentshield’s Inertia software, allowing Sesame brokers to quote immediately for Paymentshield general insurance products.

Sandy McPherson, head of marketing at Sesame, says: “We are
delighted to be included in the new Sesame panel and to bring the benefits of our competitively priced suite of general insurance products to the network’s members.

“All Sesame ARs will qualify for our double indemnity commission proposition and many will qualify for our commission Buy Out plan and we will be contacting them about this in due course.”
