Former HBOS General Insurance deputy chief executive Simon Stevens is to head Uinsure, the general insurance proposition set up by ex-Bankhall joint chief executive Simon Taylor.
Stevens joins as managing director of the company, which launches this month with Taylor as chairman.
Uinsure will provide GI support services for the mortgage market and has already signed an exclusive distribution deal with Bankhall. It will have a panel of four buildings and contents insurers and plans to offer ASU products at a later date.
Stevens, who left HBOS in September 2005, says: “Uinsure has a completely fresh and innovative approach to business with mortgage intermediaries and IFAs, with the backing of a top quality panel of insurers for its product range.”
Taylor says: “We are pleased to announce Simon is joining the company. He is well known in the GI sector and will bring a wealth of insurance knowledge and experience with him.”
