Personal Touch has added a multi-tie protection panel to join its whole of market offering.
The network has reached an agreement with six providers - Ageas, Aviva, Friends Life, Legal & General, LV= and PruProtect - to offer their products on the Integrity panel.
It will feature enhanced commission rates with no loaded premiums for the end client and targeted sales training with dedicated support to help them maximise sales.
The panel has been scheduled to launch in November and members will receive an information pack with further details.
"We envisage that the new panel will provide an extra impetus for our members to continue to develop protection as a core offering to their clients," said Dev Malle, sales and marketing director at Personal Touch.
"Every player is offering the two and four year indemnity option with Aviva offering a three year option.
"We're also working with our panel partners to develop models to help our members build sustainable businesses by being able to gradually move towards renewal income instead of being hooked on the indemnity drug.
"We've also insisted that there are no loaded premiums," he added.
