Julian Stevens complains about his Friends Provident “broker consultant” being 160 miles away in Manchester but that is close compared with most of mine.
They include Scottish Widows (Edinburgh), Scottish Provident (Reading), Prudential (Reading), Clerical Medical (Bristol), Legal & General (Cardiff), Norwich Union (Sheffield), NPI (Cardiff) and Axa Sun Life (Heaven knows).
Proximity per se is no guar-antee of service as my Friends' broker consultant would not travel 20 miles from Manch-ester to see me whereas NU drove 70 miles from Sheffield.
