"Our aim is to develop Income Protection products not readily available in the marketplace and to make protection solutions more available to a wider audience."
- Jon Gratland, CEO of Wiltshire Friendly
Appointed Representative (AR) firms can now access Wiltshire Friendly’s range of Income Protection (IP) products, with specific options available for football, rugby, and corporate clients. This includes both professional & semi-professional footballers and professional rugby players.
Wiltshire Friendly’s IP products have been designed to assist when sick pay ends, with players setting the deferred period accordingly. Policies pay for a limited benefit period, offering specific terms relative to the respective sports.
Firms can also access Wiltshire Friendly’s group IP products, with short deferred periods and benefit terms. Policies can pay within 4 weeks, helping firms offset their sick pay risk and associated costs.
Commenting on this announcement, Amanda Wilson, Director at The Right Mortgage & Protection Network, has said:
“We’re very excited to announce that Wiltshire Friendly have joined our Group Protection Panel. Sports clubs look for ways to entice players to their clubs but can only pay them so much. A value the club will add is a policy just like those available from Wiltshire Friendly.”
Jon Gratland, CEO of Wiltshire Friendly, added:
“I am delighted that The Right Mortgage has spotted the opportunity, and given Wiltshire Friendly the chance to offer more specialist income protection products to its advisers and individual and commercial clients.
“Our aim is to develop income protection products not readily available in the marketplace and to make protection solutions more available to a wider audience who need this valuable cover.
“While we have the products, we need the support of forward-thinking distributors to help us get the message out there and The Right Mortgage has been a pleasure to work with in setting up this new relationship.”
