Ascentric has added Zurich’s Sterling investment bond to its wrap platform.
Advisers using the platform can now request Sterling bond quotes and submit new bond applications online with immediate effect.
Valuations on the onshore, unit linked bond will be available from the end of March.
Ascentric executive managing director Hugo Thorman says: “Every month we are developing new services or entering into new partner arrangements with product providers across the board. The distribution partnership arrangement with Zurich is another example of the value a major player places on our independent wrap platform.”
Zurich Intermediary Group managing director Chris Gillies says: “We will continue to work closely with independent platforms such as Ascentric as well as investing in our own e-capability so that advisers can integrate our products seamlessly into their business processes which support their chosen business model.”
