Lutine Assurance Services, part of the Ardonagh Group, has signed an agreement with leading UK broker Aston Scott to provide group and business protection for Aston Scott’s SME customer base.
The agreement, which is effective immediately, will see Lutine’s specialist products, such as key man and group life being offered to Aston Scott’s SME client base.
Andy Coles, Lutine business director, said: “We are delighted to extend our niche and specialist proposition through Aston Scott. We are already writing SME and key man through their branches, but also exploring new revenue streams, including HNW health products which we believe have appeal to sub 100-FTE SMEs.
Aston Scott Group CEO Peter Blanc said: “We have been seeking solutions to enable us to provide added-value products. The partnership with Lutine will enable us to improve our competitive edge and give something extra to our SME clients.”
Coles said that Lutine is firmly focused on developing its niche and specialist strategy in the life and commercial market, as well as through its existing P&C UK distribution arm. “We expect to sign more of these deals during the next few months, as we seek to double the size of Lutine and make it a leading player in the niche UK life space,” he said.
