Aegon launches series of business protection workshops

Aegon is running a series of business protection workshops in a bid to help advisers generate new income and enter the market.

The series of interactive sessions aims to highlight the advantages of business protection, and to eradicate the misconception amongst advisers that business protection is over complicated.

Aegon head of individual protection Rod McKie says: “These sessions have proved extremely valuable in helping advisers identify those clients who need to understand the importance of protecting their businesses and the demand has been very positive.

“In addition to the workshops, we have also developed an online toolkit to further help advisers recognise the potential of this valuable market”.
