Exchange adds NU to valuation service

The Exchange has signed up a fifth provider, Norwich Union, to its online policy valuation service which is available through back-office package Exweb Gold.

Advisers will be able to access real-time aggregated policy valuations for pensions and bonds via Exweb Gold, which links into the Exchange’s Exweb research, quote and transaction portal.

Norwich Union joins Legal & General, Friends Provident, Prudential and Standard Life, which are already on the service. The Exchange expects to add Scottish Widows, Axa, Scottish Equitable and Skandia this year.

The Exchange managing director David Child says: “Further providers are due to join the service and as this number grows, so do the efficiency and cost-saving benefits that Exweb Gold can deliver.”
