Joining co-chairmen Clive Waller and Peter Le Beau will be claims consultant Karin Lloyd, Alan Tyler of Alan Tyler Consultancy – both formerly at Swiss Re and McLoughlin of the London-based IFA.
The task force is due to produce a second white paper later this year and is keen to continue to further develop the momentum around IP.
The Income Protection Task Force is comprised of almost all leading income protection providers as well as leading IP reinsurers and specialist consultants.
Waller says: “All three bring very real skills to our management team. Alan has extensive experience of working with Government to design social welfare schemes, Karin is one of the leading international experts on claims issues and Roy brings the perspective of the distributor to the group and has substantial knowledge of the group and individual sectors.”
Le Beau says: “We are delighted with the progress we have made but we are on a journey and it is a long way from being completed. We believe the composition of the task force enables us to unite the industry around collective action, taking into account the views of providers, distributors and above all,consumers.We are determined to increase consumer awareness very significantly over the next few months.”
