Shepherds Friendly partners up with iPipeline

Shepherds Friendly has recently partnered up with iPipeline and made its Income Protection plan available on their digital platform for distribution.

The new partnership makes it possible for Shepherds Friendly’s current and 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 they quote is the price adviser’s clients will pay, as Shepherds Friendly do not load premiums based on high-risk jobs, health conditions or pastimes. Additionally, they operate an indicative underwriting process, which means applications could potentially be accepted on the same day.

Head of distribution at Shepherds Friendly, Antony Uttley, 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.”

iPipeline is an online portal that provides tools for the insurance and financial services markets to sell their products. The platform allows for advisers to compare and identify protection solutions, tailored to suit the needs and budget of their clients.

Shepherds Friendly is a modern mutual always implementing new and innovative ways to deliver their products. Partnering with iPipeline reiterates that by ensuring an efficient digital experience for their advisers and in-turn their members, by helping speed-up the buying process.

Their dedicated Business Development Team is also there to help and support all intermediaries every step of the way, whenever needed, with quick response times to any questions or queries.
