Assureweb gets funding deal

Assureweb has deals in place to continue funding of an unspecified sum with three product providers after an existing agreement runs out at the end of May.

In January 2002 Norwich Union, Scottish Widows and Friends Provident agreed to pay 16.8m for ongoing services until May 2005.

At that time those three providers plus Aegon and Clerical Medical, together also paid 9.2m for a 40 per cent stake in the web portal.
