PMS extends protection panel

PMS has extended its protection panel to include the likes of Bupa, Bright Grey and Pru Protect.

Other new members include LV=, Royal Liver and Aegon, adding to the existing providers on the panel Friends Provident, Legal and General Norwich Union, Scottish Provident and Zurich.

PMS development director Martin Reynolds says: “The addition of a wider protection panel will allow the broker greater choice and freedom. With all fees paid directly to the end user from the providers we have designed an excellent proposition for the broker at a time when there is much concern about firms not receiving payment from third parties.”

Pru Protect director of protection development Kevin Carr says: “We are very pleased to be working in partnership with PMS as a provider on the wider panel. The team are very much looking forward to supporting PMS members going forward with our fresh approach to business.”
