Ed Stuart-Brown of Friends Provident and Colin Micklewright of Canada Life discuss the world of IP.
Interactive Financial Adviser, as part of IFAonline's Spotlight On Income Protection day, examines the Income Protection market in order to ascertain what can be done to strengthen its position. Has the recent underwriting improvements led to greater ease in the sales process? Have clients become too reliant on the state for protection or advisers not educating them on the potentially risks of not being privately insured? With more being spent on illness cover in the UK than the entire GDP of Portugal, have insurance companies been too slow to reform?
The debate chaired by IFAonline and Professional Adviser News Editor Scott Sinclair sees Ed Stuart-Brown, Head of Protection Sales at Friends Provident and Colin Micklewright, Head of Group Income Protection Business Development at Canada Life discuss how the IP market may change in the upcoming month.
