Swiss Life inviting advisers to breakfast

Swiss Life is holding a series of IFA breakfast briefings across the UK to

discuss the group risk protection market.

The first More Than A Cheque briefings start this summer in Birmingham on

June 13, London on July 12 and Bristol on July 19. They will continue

throughout the year.

The briefings aim to provide IFAs with new business opportunities and a

chance to discuss topical issues surrounding the protection market.

Each briefing will include a presentation by Swiss Life and a question and

answer session. The first sessions will look at the way value-added

services can enhance the group protection offering, the latest trends in

the market and how employers can use employee benefits as a way of

retaining, attracting and motivating staff.

Swiss Life communications manager Nicola Smith says: “We have recently

launched our More Than A Cheque group protection strategy and want to push

this through to IFAs. We see this as a major opportunity for IFAs and

believe this is a way to help them.”
