Friends Provident has enhanced its automated online Investment Bond processing.
The group is also offering an extra 2% allocation on any new business processed using this online service until 31st Dec 2001.
Friends Provident said the key improvement to the service was to help streamline new business submissions by allowing users to obtain fully compliant illustrations; complete electronic proposal forms offline with clients or in the office; ensure accuracy with self-validating application forms; transmit business electronically for rapid approval; receive automated acknowledgements of applications and also save and retrieve partially completed applications.
There is also a 5% commission uplift on Lautro rates for all New Business submissions.
Automated Investment Bond processing is available through the Friends Provident IFA Extranet at http://www.friendsprovident.co.uk/IFA/online/auto.html.
The online service enhancements support the launch of the new Friends Provident Investment Portfolio Bond which includes a 2% extra allocation offer.
