Royal London awarded nine gold ratings in Finance & Technology Research Centre 2017 Protection Product rankings
12 December 2017
Commenting on the success Isobel Langton, CEO Intermediary at Royal London said:
“I am delighted that we have scooped nine gold ratings in this year’s F&TRC protection product rankings.
“We introduced a number of changes to our critical illness and income protection propositions this year, we also reviewed our underwriting philosophy. The changes are designed so that more people can get cover and we can pay more claims. It’s testament to the hard work and drive from the protection team to make sure that our products meet the needs of today’s customers. This includes offering value for money and support, we don’t just send a cheque when they claim, but offer additional support through Helping Hand and provide award winning service to advisers and their clients.”
“Following in the footsteps of being awarded a number of gold medals from F&TRC in their 2017 pension product ratings in the Workplace Pensions and standalone auto-enrolment ratings where we received eight underlying gold awards, up from two last year, it really is a great achievement.”
F&TRC’s product ratings are designed to help advisers understand which providers offer the most suitable proposition for their clients. They apply a range of metrics across a number of categories to assess providers in consultation with independent experts and adviser firms.
