The roadshows are designed to educate advisers on the need for income protection and the importance of it within the financial planning process.
The first of these roadshows will be on 28th April in Glasgow and 29th April in Edinburgh, and held in conjunction with Scottish Provident and Bright Grey, two leading income protection specialists owned by the Royal London Group.
These roadshows will enable financial advisers to directly access the experts within the income protection sector, as there will be presentations by advisers, insurers and specialist consultants. Financial advisers will also be given information on the high incidence rate and financial consequences of a long term disability as well as the new Employment Support Allowance. Financial advisers will then be better equipped with the skills and knowledge to increase their sales of income protection to clients.
