Mortgage Promotions adds Kensington Insurance to panel

Mortgage Promotions has added Kensington Insurance to its distribution panel, allowing its members full access to Kensington’s accident, sickness and unemployment insurance and Kensington home insurance products.

The former covers self-employed workers if they have no income for two months due to lack of orders – even if the company is still trading.

It also offers a choice of cover options, including “back to day one cover” that will pay dated back to the first day a policy holder is unable to work.

Kensington home insurance has a price beater option of up to £25 against many leading insurers, business equipment and stock cover option for self-employed workers and immediate cover available.

Keith Street, director of sales at Kensington Mortgages, says: “We are delighted that Kensington Insurance products are now available to Mortgage Promotions members.

“These products offer protection and general insurance solutions to meet the needs of our customers and, in particular, the self-employed for whom our products boast unique criteria.

“Mortgage Promotions is a distributor whose philosophies are built on independence and choice and, with the ability to choose from Kensington Insurance’s products, its members now have more choice to find the right cover for their clients.”

Nick Baxter, director of Mortgage Promotions, adds: “We are delighted that Kensington has become one of our insurance product providers.

“Mortgage Promotions supports directly authorised brokers who demand choice.

“We know our members will like the Kensington products and we are looking forward to working with it.”
