Axa introduces roving underwriter service

Axa has introduced a roving underwriter service where underwriters will visit advisers around the country to answer their queries.

The underwriters will talk to Axa’s key accounts about FSA guideline changes, technical medical queries and business protection and financial underwriting. Axa says the service has been created in response to adviser demand.

Chief underwriter for protection Mike Taylor says: “As far as we’re aware this is the first time a UK protection provider has offered a roving underwriter service and we’re expecting a lot of demand from our key accounts.

“Just a few years ago underwriting was seen as a back office function but it’s now part of the sharp end of protection sales. Our key accounts have requested more access to our underwriting team which is why we’ve decided to bring in roving underwriters to be deployed in the field.”
