Skandia strengthens protection offering with dual hire

Skandia has moved to strengthen its wealth management team with the appointment of two protection specialists.

Colin Betts joins the provider from Royal London, where he was head of sales training for Bright Grey and Scottish Provident.

Nathalie Claeys arrives from Legal & General, where she was protection and development manager.

Skandia head of wealth planning Colin Jelley says: “Colin and Nathalie are great additions to the team and will significantly enhance our capacity to add value in the market for protection solutions. 

“We have made significant enhancements to the Skandia protection proposition over the last year and we believe that this area is a fruitful opportunity for advisers to demonstrate the value they bring to their clients’ financial affairs.”

Highclere Financial Services partner Alan Lakey says: “Skandia’s critical illness plan is right at the top of the quality league but I think a lot of advisers are not even aware they are in the protection market, so appointing Nathalie and Colin to explain to the market why it is a good product makes perfect sense.”
