&#39PMI growth is the best in 10 years&#39

The private medical insurance sector has seen more growth in new products recently than it has for a decade, according to the creators of the 2004 PMI Handbook.

The handbook is put together by West Sussex specialist PMI intermediary Green Denman & Co consultant Andrew Green.

Green says the 2004 edition of the handbook has increased in size by more than 15 per cent compared with last year due to new product launches from existing providers and new plans from new providers.

The handbook is a reference tool for intermediaries covering details on individual and group policies from 30 insurers on a like-for-like basis and includes a glossary of medical terms and a contact list of international PMI firms.

Green says: “This year has seen the highest level of growth in new products in the last 10 years. IFAs certainly have their work cut out when familiarising themselves with the opt-ions available. The book aims to make their life that little bit easier.”
