SimplyBiz signs Pru protection tie-up


Prudential Financial Planning has agreed a panel arrangement with SimplyBiz that will see it offer protection products from eight providers.

Prudential previously only offered protection products from one provider, Vitality.

Haines says: “We are a fast-growing business and aim to become one of the leading providers of financial advice in the UK. This agreement with The SimplyBiz Group is an important development for Prudential Financial Planning and highlights how we are determined to grow our business.”

Simply Biz Group joint chief executive Matt Timmins says: “Prudential Financial Planning’s decision to use our protection panel is really positive news for the Group, Prudential Financial Planning’s advisers and, most importantly, their clients.”
