You can now find Shepherds Friendly on iPipeline
We are proud to announce that we have partnered up with iPipeline and our Income Protection plan is now available on their digital platform.
This is a fantastic opportunity as the partnership will make it possible for our current and potentially future advisers to research and recommend a variety of plans and apply for them on behalf of their clients, all in a matter of minutes.
Further good news for those opting to utilise the iPipeline platform is the price we quote is the price their client will pay, as we do not load our premiums based on high-risk jobs, health conditions or pastimes. Moreover, our indicative underwriting process allows for applications to potentially be accepted on the same day.
iPipeline is an online portal that provides tools for the insurance and financial services markets to sell their products. The platform will allow for advisers to compare and identify protection solutions, tailored to suit the needs and budget of their clients.
As a modern mutual we are always looking for new and innovative ways to deliver our products. Partnering with iPipeline will ensure an efficient digital experience for our advisers and in-turn our members, by helping speed-up the buying process. Our dedicated Business Development Team is also here to help and support all our intermediaries every step of the way, whenever needed, with quick response times to any questions or queries.
Antony Uttley, our head of distribution, commented on the partnership:
“We are pleased about partnering up with iPipeline and to be able to offer our Income Protection on their platform. Working with iPipeline brings us one step closer to increasing the awareness of the need for protection in the UK. This will enable us to offer our advisers even more choice and a better digital experience, as a result of which they can help better protect their clients.”
