R&SA revamps website to boost group risk sales

Royal & Sun Alliance Life & Pensions is aiming to boost sales of group protection products with the relaunch of its group risk website.

The site gives IFAs and employers access to a range of information and support services on group risk products.

In addition to giving information about the life office&#39s group risk portfolio, the site also contains answers to frequently asked questions.

IFAs can download application forms and product literature and request scheme illustrations, which they will get via email. A product breakdown, including cover, costs and documentation, is available and there is help and support documents for renewals and claims.

R&SA says the site offers background support and res-ources to help IFAs set up, administer and manage a group risk scheme and highlights potential danger areas in the design and operation of such schemes.

IFA corporate market lea-der Peter Anderson says: “The launch of this website reinforces Royal & Sun Alliance&#39s commitment to making life easier for IFAs by providing access to everything they need to know about building a complete employee benefits package. The group risk internet site has a new look as well as free and easier navigation.”
