Sesame offers training to sell GI

Sesame is setting up a training programme to help adviser firms diversify their income stream by enabling support staff to write general insurance business.

The course, to be delivered by Sesame’s GI and regulatory training team, provides staff with the skills and permissions to offer advice on buildings, contents and accident, sickness and unemployment products.

Head of GI and development Roger Crocker says: “Providing IFA support staff with these important skills means they can deliver a valuable service to clients and generate additional revenue for the firm.”
