Norwich Union and Co-Operative Insurance Society have signed a distribution agreement for a range of NU products.
The agreement will see NU providing four products to complement CIS’s existing product range.
CIS’s 2,200 financial advisers will have access to a personal pension, a uni-linked bond and IHT planning via CIS’s sales force and a guaranteed acceptance plan marketed direct to customers.
The launch is scheduled for the first quarter of 2006.
CIS chief executive David Anderson says: “NU is rightly regarded as a quality product provider who combined with the strength of our existing product range and salesforce channel, will help deliver a truly compelling proposition for our customers.”
