"We want to reach a point where GI becomes fully embedded within our mortgage application process and we believe Paymentshield will help us achieve this."
Paymentshield has partnered with Brilliant Solutions, the mortgage club and specialist mortgage packager, to offer general insurance solutions to its network of advisers.
The partnership will give Brilliant Solutions’ advisers access to Paymentshield’s Adviser Hub technology, offering home insurance from its panel of insurers, as well as a wealth of functionality and business insights to help them make the most of the GI opportunity.
Access to Paymentshield’s GI offering is already live with an initial cohort of Brilliant’s advisers and is due to be rolled out more widely across the remainder of Brilliant’s firms over the coming months.
In addition to the home insurance offering itself, advisers will have support from Paymentshield’s team of over 25 sales and business development managers, along with additional resources designed to support the GI sales process.
This includes a comparison tool powered by Defaqto, a marketing toolkit with an extensive range of customer guides and literature that can be adviser-branded, and links to the GI Academy with its full range of CPD material.
Matthew Arena, managing director of Brilliant Solutions, said: “We want to reach a point where GI becomes fully embedded within our mortgage application process and we believe Paymentshield will help us achieve this. They have consistently established themselves as market leaders in the support they offer advisers, equipping them with everything they need to have effective GI conversations with clients and ensure they’ve got the right protection for their home.
“As such, we have every confidence that this partnership will help our advisers reach their full potential.”
Emma Green, distribution director at Paymentshield, added: “We’re really excited to be joining the Brilliant Solutions family as we help their advisers ultimately widen the scope of their advice. We’re on a mission to encourage every adviser to have a GI conversation with every single mortgage client. Not only is it the right thing to do in delivering a well-rounded service to clients, but it also presents an untapped income stream for many. Brilliant shares our commitment to adviser development so this partnership is a natural fit.”
