Enterprise launches will-writing company

Enterprise Group has launched its own will-writing company – Enterprise Wills.

Designed to add further value for intermediaries that use Enterprises packaging service, the company provides a simple but comprehensive range of will-writing services, ranging from the more straight-forward wills, to more complex arrangements where the clients need is to maximise inheritance tax efficiency.

Enterprise Wills was launched on October 31 2005.

Michael Clapper, chief executive officer of Enterprise Group, says: “Our service is free of charge to brokers who do not need to be licenced.

“Most other will providers necessitate either licensing for brokers or a significant cost to buy an agency.

“In keeping with Enterprises philosophy of offering intermediaries added value services, together with ease of use and peace of mind, introducers just pass their clients details to Enterprise Wills and we do the rest.

“So clients gain a much-needed service, which further cements their relationship with their broker, who generates a further income stream, for doing no work whatsoever.”

Brian Meehan, managing director of Enterprise Wills, says: “It is an unfortunate fact that nearly 70% of consumers have either an out-of-date will, or even worse, no will at all.

“The professional mortgage intermediary is in a prime position to advise their clients on this need.

“Understandably, too many brokers see this area as a lot of hassle for little reward, hence unwittingly doing both the broker and their clients a dis-service. Enterprise Wills changes all that: now our introducers can help their clients simply and profitably by letting us take care of it.

“We work with clients to make sure their needs are fully met – including the most complex Inheritance Tax planning – and keep the brokers fully informed along the way.”
