Posted in: Products Last updated: 02 Jul 2008

engage Mutual Assurance has broadened the distribution of its Guaranteed 50 Plus Life cover plan to IFAs. Following a successful pilot with partner network, Park Row, the plan is now available through SimplyBiz and Intrinsic Financial Services Ltd.

engage Marketing Director, Karl Elliott, stated:

“The Guaranteed 50 Plus Life Cover has enjoyed considerable success to date and in response to demand from our IFA partners, we are delighted to extend its availability. A simple and affordable plan, it is designed for those over 50s looking for life cover without the intrusion and complexities of underwriting. For IFAs seeking to address the reduction in their income from mortgage business prompted by the credit crunch, it provides an opportunity to revisit their clients’ protection needs.”

Its Guaranteed 50 Plus Life Cover provides guaranteed acceptance without a medical; the reassurance of guaranteed fixed premiums; and an end to premiums at age 90, although cover continues.
