UK advice network The Openwork Partnership has bolstered its protection proposition by joining forces with specialist broker Cura Financial Services.
The deal enables Openwork advisers to help clients with specialist protection needs get access to life, critical illness, and income protection insurance products.
Cura Financial Services says that it prides itself “on being able to offer some form of cover to the majority of clients help clients”, which includes those with a history of cancer, heart attack, strokes, mental health issues and HIV as well as clients in the armed forces, working offshore, at heights or under water.
Paul Shearman, proposition director of mortgages and protection at The Openwork Partnership, said the deal will “help our advisers to support even more clients and enable them to get the insurance they need”.
Alan Knowles, managing director of Cura, added: “It’s disappointing for both advisers and clients when protection can’t be offered due to a health condition, occupational risk or travel disclosures.
“The Openwork Partnership advisers now have a greater opportunity to be able to place clients who previously would have been declined. We’re absolutely delighted to be working with The Openwork Partnership and look forward to helping to protect more clients.”
