Paradigm Group partners with Towergate Home & Protect

The Paradigm Group has announced a new partnership with Towergate Home & Protect to provide members with access to its home and buy-to-let insurance proposition.

From today Paradigm members will be able to provide their clients with Towergate’s wide range of web-based general insurance products.  Home & Protect offer Buildings & Contents quotations from a panel which includes AXA, Equity Red Star, and Zurich plus a consortium of leading UK insurers.  

Towergate Home & Protect also offer specialist support for cases that are difficult to place.  Specialist insurance products include cover for buy-to-let property portfolios, high net worth schemes, unoccupied thatched, or previously underpinned properties, homes of non-standard construction and holiday homes. 

Towergate Home & Protect has also recently relaunched its Mortgage Payment Protection and Income Protection products with a choice of Accident Sickness and Unemployment, Accident and Sickness only or Unemployment cover.

David Ford, managing director of Towergate Home and Protect, says: “Home and Protect brings to the market a unique proposition based on ease, choice and value.  We have established a common policy wording for our household building and contents panel; a non-standard solution for more difficult to place risks and a wide range of web-based general insurance products to make placing business easier for Paradigm Group members.

“We’re part of the Towergate Partnership, Europe’s largest independently-owned insurance intermediary.  Over the last 12 months we have established excellent working relationships with a number of leading distributors providing access to over 8,000 agents, with plans to broaden our distribution even further.  

“We are confident that we can offer the registered individuals of Paradigm’s 600-plus firms with an excellent service and invite Paradigm members interested in working with us to visit the Paradigm website to register their interest.”

Bob Hunt, partner at Paradigm Group and chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services, says: “At Paradigm Group we are always looking for ways to add value to the services we offer our members which is why we seek to establish a broad range of partnerships in a wide variety of sectors.  The strong proposition offered by Towergate Home & Protect and the range of highly competitive GI products seemed an obvious addition to make to our own GI offering. 

“It is always our aim to offer Paradigm members the most attractive and competitive terms available in the market and we believe this is the case with Towergate Home & Protect.  I would urge all Paradigm members to visit our websites to gain full information on this exciting new relationship and we look forward to working with the Home & Protect team in the future.”
