John Hayden, product and services director at Intrinsic Financial Services, says: “Both Mint and IWM have built strong reputations for professionalism and integrity, and so it is important that we look for business partners that share these qualities. Assurant Intermediary understands that advisers need to have complete confidence in the products and services they provide to their clients. We believe that the team at Assurant Intermediary works hard to ensure that their products are consumer centric and competitively priced, and we are delighted that Mint and IWM will be partnering with them.”

Kevin Paterson, sales and marketing director for Assurant Intermediary, says: “Our general insurance expertise combined with our experience of working exclusively with intermediaries means that we understand what advisers are looking for. We are passionate about providing both high quality products and service, and look forward to supporting IFAs who belong to the Mint and IWM networks over the coming months.”

    Gemma,
    You are right and wrong, PYB is an AR of Assurant Intermediary but it is operated and managed by our parent company, we are intermediary facing only hence the development of the broker facing version of the site. PYB is transactional and offers no advice therefore, your point about cross-selling or dual pricing is erroneous. Happy to explain it to you further if you get in touch, we might even be able to offer you a branded version for your business.

    Interesting that Protectyourbubble.com is actually a trading name of Assurant Direct

    And Assurant Direct is actually an AR of Assurant Intermediary Ltd?

    Worried about cross selling data or offering same product at two prices? Dual pricing?

    I think Gemma is confused, Protectyourbubble.com is a consumer facing price comparison site offered by our parent company. At Assurant Intermediary we are developing a broker version of this so that advisers with consumer facing sites can capture part of the direct market. This is just one of an extensive range of tools we offer in order to help advisers grow their businesses and I would be more than happy to share these with any adviser who is interested.

    Interesting, will advisers get the same deals Assurant offer direct on their internet site Protect Your bubble.com?
    I thought being part of an IFA network meant getting support to grow your business so lets hope so
