George Higginson, chief operating officer at Sesame Bankhall Group, says: “As the UK’s largest intermediary support services group we have a broad base of adviser customers. Our partnership with Connells is another example of how we are able to offer different solutions to suit intermediaries’ individual needs.
“Interest in offering protection cover is increasing, particularly amongst mortgage advisers who are looking to enhance their service to clients.”
David Livesey, group chief executive of Connells, says: “This is a strategic partnership for Connells based upon the synergies between ourselves and Sesame Bankhall Group.
“Our partnership will go beyond protection products by utilising other Connells Group services and making the most of mutual benefits that a long-term affiliation will provide.”
