"UnderwriteMe's protection platform offers excellent benefits in terms of time saving, efficiency and breadth of choice"
TMA's directly authorised member firms will now have access to UnderwriteMe's protection platform.
The free online service offers advisers a single question set to compare underwritten life, critical illness and income protection products from a range of insurers, saving time and providing customers with a "buy now" service. It also includes a full integration with research experts Defaqto, allowing in-depth product comparisons.
Jackie Wassall, corporate relationship manager at TMA, commented: "We are committed to providing all members at TMA access to the best tools available to enhance the service they can provide to clients. UnderwriteMe's protection platform offers excellent benefits in terms of time saving, efficiency and breadth of choice, all of which are key factors for our members."
Pippa Keefe, distribution director at UnderwriteMe, added: "In the first quarter of 2019 we saw over 50,000 policies sold through protection platform and an ever-growing number of advisers switching from traditional portals to our digital solution and never looking back. We are therefore delighted that TMA has chosen to give its members access to the protection platform - expanding and enhancing our customer outreach with one of the UK's leading mortgage clubs."
