Hargreaves Lansdown puts together new Clerical Medical stakeholder product

Hargreaves Lansdown has put together a new stakeholder plan from Clerical Medical offering enhanced terms.

It says a price war is breaking out between stakeholder providers and it has been able to negotiate an exclusive deal on Clerical’s Futureproof plan.

The plan includes an enhancement of up to 3 per cent on premiums and the plan is free of charge until June 2002. It also offers access to a range of 20 investment funds, instead of the seven usually available.
