Charcol chooses Legal & General for household insurance

01 July 2005
Independent mortgage broker John Charcol has chosen Legal & General to be the sole provider of household and buy-to-let insurance offered through the company.

Peter Barrett, managing director at John Charcol, said that the broker was impressed by Legal & General's product and service proposition, technical expertise and deep understanding of the company's advisers' needs.

"We are looking forward to working with Legal & General to develop and maximise household insurance business opportunities in the future," Mr Barrett stated.

Insurance managing director at Legal & General, Ian Viney, said he was delighted his company had been chosen.

"Both companies are well placed to significantly grow our businesses in the new regulated environment and we believe that we have a very attractive proposition for John Charcol's advisers and their clients," Mr Viney stated.

"The introduction of new mortgage and insurance regulations is resulting in financial advisers and mortgage brokers reviewing their general insurance offering and it is very pleasing that the good value-for-money products and services we offer have been recognised by such a market-leader."
