Aegon to hold business protection seminars

Aegon Scottish Equitable is running a series of seminars aimed at providing advisers with the support and information they need to start writing business protection.

Aegon says business protection is a much overlooked market but says it is vitally important to the protection needs of many people.

The protection provider will be holding four seminars in Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester and London throughout April.

Aegon Scottish Equitable head of individual protection Alun Beynon says: “The important thing to remember is that if you don’t look after your client’s business protection needs, someone else will.

“We want to help advisers discover how easy it is to identify potential business protection prospects, get all the information you need to start writing business and provide all the support and advice when you need it.”
