Sesame to host protection technical seminars in July

Sesame is hosting 21 technical seminars across the UK in July to address key issues in the protection market.

The seminars will look at opportunities for advisers to enhance revenue by increasing their focus on protection business, as well as the latest regulatory and product developments.

Sesame Learning Manager Graham Addison, says: “It is a real anomaly that at a time when the cost of protection cover has generally fallen, so has the amount of business being written. Yet statistics demonstrate that many UK households still do not have sufficient life cover for their mortgage, and have no idea of the financial hardship posed by a serious illness or long-term disability.

“Sesame is seeking to help advisers increase their focus on both individual and business protection, which is particularly timely as many advisers look to enhance their service and revenue, in light of the current tough conditions in the mortgage market. The advice profession is ideally placed to help clients ensure that they have the right level of cover, at an affordable price, with policies that will pay out in the event of a claim.”


Seeing the potential

Moving 1,800 users of a critical software system at the same time is a gargantuan task. This is what True Potential achieved for Positive Solutions over the Christmas period.
