Mortgage Next adds Assurant Intermediary to GI panel

Mortgage Next has added Assurant Intermediary to its general insurance panel for both appointed representatives and directly authorised members.

Members will have access to Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance, residential buildings and content cover, income protection and landlord property insurance.

Sally Laker, managing director of Mortgage Intelligence Holdings, says: “Assurant Intermediary joined the Mortgage Intelligence panel in 2009 and we have been continually impressed with their products, service and commitment to the intermediary market. For us adding them onto panel for Mortgage Next advisers was a no-brainer and I’m confident that members will find value in their competitive product range and quality support. They have some exciting product developments planned for 2010 and we’re delighted to be working alongside the Assurant Intermediary team to deliver these to our members.”

Kevin Paterson, sales and marketing director at Assurant Intermediary, says: “We pride ourselves on the flexibility, competitiveness and quality of our general insurance products. Intermediaries need to explore every avenue available to them to generate income in today’s challenging environment. I believe the combination of our general insurance expertise and our understanding of the intermediary marketplace allow us to deliver a range of products that can provide Mortgage Next advisers with a valuable revenue stream.”
