Uinsure ahead of targets with 800 agents

Web-based general insurance panel Uinsure has signed its 800th firm to use its services for buildings and contents and mortgage payment protection insurance.

Ashton Mortgage & Financial Solutions was the 800th firm to sign up.

With 1,000 firms expected by the end of the first year, Uinsure chief executive Simon Taylor says they are now well ahead of target.

He says: “When we developed our proposition it was a key business objective to enrol 1,000 firms in our first year. I am delighted that after just seven months we are well ahead of our target. This achievement re-enforces our belief that advisers want an effective easy-to-use system with a panel offering.”

Ashton Mortgage & Financial Solutions broker Kenneth Thomas says: “I was really impressed with Uinsure’s leading edge sales platform backed by an impressive range of insurers together with the offer of 30 per cent commission. I am proud to be part of their 800 club and wish them every success going forward.”
