2019 added extras round up

Celebrating our heroes

We introduced ways to reward the great work of intermediaries, and developed tools to support your conversations with clients.

 

Middleman Heroes

Intermediaries make a big difference to peoples’ lives, particularly at their most challenging times. We created our very first ‘Hero In The Middle’ competition to celebrate these individuals. Our aim is to highlight intermediaries who go above and beyond for clients and families, providing financial advice that makes a positive difference. You can take a look at our hero case studies here.

State of the Nation Research: Edition Six

Since 2009, we’ve undertaken research within the small and medium size business sector to understand and explore the risks businesses are exposed to. In our 6th edition of State of the Nation, we analysed how businesses are managing their risks should something happen to one of their key people or owners.

We aim to help your conversations with clients about protecting their businesses - talk to your clients today.

Key points:

  • 52% of businesses acknowledge that they would close within a year if they lost a key person.
  • 69% of business owners have never heard of relevant life plans.
  • Business owners think that the cost of life cover is 3x more expensive than it actually is.
  • Half of business owners would be willing to spend £100pm or more to provide protection for themselves and their business, with nearly a quarter happy to spend over £500pm.
