Halifax General Insurance has today announced that its general insurance intermediary sales team is set to join forces with HBOS mortgage intermediaries.
It will result in a larger sales force to provide advice on both mortgages and insurance products.
Managing director of mortgage intermediaries Nigel Stockton will assume responsibility for the distribution of general insurance intermediary sales from August 1. The general insurance intermediaries team will continue to be led by Jon Craven.
Stockton says: “This is a reflection of the continued importance of the intermediary market to HBOS. It will see our sales forces work more closely with GI colleagues to provide an even better service to brokers.”
Craven says: “This will ensure that our insurance and mortgage intermediary businesses are more closely aligned in the future. Our strategy is to focus on developing both HBOS range of general insurance products for intermediaries and the platforms across which they are delivered.”
