Standard Life and Sterling Assurance are the latest insurers to offer an online new business service to IFAs through the AssureWeb internet trading platform.
Standard Life's Capital Investment Bond and Sterling's Unit Linked Bond are now available over AssureWeb and intermediaries can complete business online from quotation to application to submission.
AssureWeb now has nine product providers signed-up, which it claims makes it the biggest online new business system. It claims 15,000 financial intermediaries are registered users of the portal.
AssureSoft sales and marketing director Nicola Mitchell says: “This announcement is a further endorsement of the service we provide for IFAs.”
