Primis adds Scottish Widows Protect to panel

Primis has announced the addition of Scottish Widows Protect to its protection panel.

In addition to the firm’s suite of life and critical illness insurance products, members of the Primis network will now be able to access Scottish Widows Care, which works with the independent nurse advice service RedArc to support people and their families through traumatic events.

Primis and Personal Touch have been busy lately, adding Guardian Financial Services and British Friendly to their protection and general insurance panels just this month.

Primis protection manager Steve Berry says: “The PRIMIS and PTFS motto is ‘every pound of lending is a pound that needs protecting’ – we believe that every time a broker sees or interacts with a client, they should be thinking about protection.

“We are therefore delighted to be launching with a provider that is at the forefront of the market, providing leading underwriting services to customers, all the while ensuring they are covered adequately and appropriately. This will ensure our brokers have access to an extensive range of products and the accompanying knowledge to better serve customers in this space.”

Scottish Widows head of protection distribution Gillian Sephton adds: “At Scottish Widows our ambition is for every family to be able to access protection insurance which can only be achieved through quality advice from advisers. We understand how important it is for advisers and clients to be offered cover with clear, easy to understand products and look forward to working with PRIMIS.”
