Unconventional cover that helps your advice stand out

We know it’s important to do things differently. That’s why all our protection plans available through intermediaries come with Helping Hand  – our comprehensive support service – at no extra cost. In times of ill health, it gives your clients access to advice and support from a personal nurse adviser – even if they never make a claim.

Helping Hand can help you to show the value of your advice and build long-term relationships with your clients, which can only be good for your business.
