HL Partnership signs up to LifeQuote system

Mortgage intermediary network HL Partnership has signed a deal with Direct Life and Pensions Services.

This means HomeLoan Partnership appointed representatives will be able to access protection products from a single on-line point of access as well as the express underwriting service.

HL Partnership managing director Martin Cave says: “I see this as a very significant step towards helping to increase the productivity of our network members.

DLP sales and marketing director Richard Verdin says: “We see in HL Partnership a business dedicated to providing their advisers with the tools they need to succeed and prosper in what is for a great many a challenging market place.”
