Skipton signs 5-year GI deal with L&G


Skipton Building Society has signed a five-year general insurance distribution deal with Legal & General.

The deal will see Skipton Building Society customers buy Legal & General buildings and contents insurance online, on the phone, or through a branch.

The firms want to offer the general insurance product on aggregator sites under the Skipton brand.

Skipton head of products Kris Brewster says: “A property is more than bricks and mortar, it’s a home. And we’re always working to make sure our members can protect the things they love most. So after a thorough review of our home insurance offering, we’re delighted to be partnering with Legal & General.”

Skipton and L&G will also give customers the same pricing deal wherever they buy the insurance.

Legal & General Insurance Partnerships managing director Mark Holweger says: “It’s great news Skipton Building Society has chosen us as their general insurance partner, and I look forward to providing their customers with great value general insurance products and excellent customer service.”
