Your Mortgage Decisions to focus on protection sales

Your Mortgage Decisions has announced an increased focus on protection sales on the back of the government’s recent Comprehensive Spending Review proposals.

With Chancellor George Osborne unveiling £81bn of planned spending cuts over the next four years leading to estimated public sector job losses of 490,000, Your Mortgage Decisions is looking to increase protection sales activity amongst its advisers to ensure clients have sufficient protection amidst the current economic instability.

“Maximising the potential of this sales area will certainly benefit advisers and their clients as we all have to navigate some unstable times that lie ahead.”
