Foresters Friendly Society has launched an IFA portal where advisers can create and download illustrations and submit business online.
The portal includes product literature on the society’s over 50s whole of life insurance plan and its individual savings accounts. It also offers advisers access to Foresters’ tax exempt savings plans for adults and children, which provides accounts for tax-free savings in addition to the ISA allowance.
Foresters started distributing through IFAs in 2008, but since last October has been trying to strengthen its position further in the IFA market.
The portal is free for advisers to use, with advisers required to register before they can access the portal.
Marketing director Neil Armitage says: “We want IFAs and their clients to understand that there are other, more diverse financial solutions out there other than just plcs. Building awareness and uptake of our financial services products in the intermediary market is an essential part of our plan for the society’s continued organic growth.”
