Harrison Beaumont forges partnership with Conti

Under the partnership, Harrison Beaumont – the specialist insurances arm of the R3 network – will regularly promote CFS&#39s products through its distribution channels, which include subsidiaries, the affinity marketplace, IFAs and estate agents. In turn, CFS will promote Harrison Beaumont products, such as building and contents cover, to its client base.

Robin Williams, marketing director of R3, says: “The partnership is a logical one to have put in place.
