CGU Life is slashing term insurance and mortgage protection rates.
The biggest cuts are for smokers. A 25-year-old fem ale smoker can take
out mortgage protection on a £70,000 loan over 25 years for £5.43 a month
which means a 42 per cent cut from £9.35 a month.
A 35-year-old male smoker can take out a term insurance policy with a sum
assured of £115,000 over 25-years for £28.22 a month, which is a 21 per
cent cut on the old rate of £35.80.
A male non-smoker with a £70,000 loan over 15 years will pay £11.24, a 7
per cent drop on the old rate of £12.08.
Commission is 100 per cent of Lautro rates plus uplift.
CGU Life head of IFA business John Enos says: “We are writing record
levels of protection business and are able to spread costs across increased
customer volume, allowing us to bring costs down.”
The company offers some of the lowest rates on the market, according to
data compiled by The Exchange.
