Paradigm boosts GI offering with Assurant Intermediary

Assurant Intermediary has been added to Paradigm Mortgage Services’ general insurance proposition.

Paradigm members can now offer Assurant Intermediary’s GI range including accident, sickness and unemployment cover with mortgage and payment protection and income protection.

The product is available through Assurant Intermediary’s quote and sales software Intermediary Point of Sale.

Bob Hunt, chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services, says: “Our overall membership for Paradigm Group has now grown to within touching distance of 500 firms.

“It has always been our aim to offer our members access to innovative products at competitive terms.

“This link-up with Assurant Intermediary certainly fits the Paradigm proposition providing members with a further avenue to explore in terms of their client’s GI needs.”

Kevin Paterson, sales and marketing director at Assurant Intermediary, says: “We strongly believe that the sale of GI products forms a core part of every adviser’s offering and provide a valuable revenue stream, particularly in the current environment.

“We’ve worked hard to ensure that the insurances we provide are customer centric and offer value for money and so we’ve made it easy for advisers to compare them against the market and to sell in a compliant manner.”
