In PA's sister title Cover's first Covid-19 Zoom-recorded video interview, Cover editor Adam Saville quizzes Alan Knowles, chair of the Protection Distributors Group (PDG) and Cura managing director, and Roy Mcloughlin, co-chair of the Income Protection Task Force (IPTF) and Cavendish Ware associate director.
The Covid-19 crisis has brought with it a raft of underwriting changes to protection policies and, as a result, a number of challenges for advisers.
In the below video, the trio discuss:
- Recent underwriting changes in light of coronavirus and the emergence of remote medical screenings.
- The challenges faced by advisers, how to place cover at this time and avoid cancellations.
- The importance of collaboration as an industry and why communication is key.
- Building a community during COVID-19 and looking forward to #NoVAD (No Virus Anymore Day).
