Assurant Intermediary has teamed up with All Types of Mortgages (AToM) to provide the packager with general insurance (GI) products.
AToM users will have access to buildings and contents, payment protection and mortgage protection insurance products.
Kevin Paterson, sales and marketing director at Assurant, says: "By broadening its product range to include general insurance, AToM will be able to help mortgage introducers create valuable new revenue streams at a time when they are having to make up for lost income in the current tough climate."
Dale Jannels, sales and marketing director for AToM, says: "AToM has consistently looked for opportunities to assist brokers and intermediaries during these prolonged turbulent times. We have recently received a variation in permissions and are now regulated in both mortgages and GI, allowing our DA introducers to be comfortable when dealing with AToM in all arenas."
AToM continues to offer a no cross-selling guarantee to its introducers if they require it, meaning they can offer the full range of mortgage-related products to clients.
Jannels adds: "Assurant Intermediary's products will be accessible online, making it easy for introducers to find the most suitable and affordable policies to meet the needs of their clients."IFAonline
