Scottish Provident clubs together with Direct Protect

Direct Protect is a non-regulated national network, specialising in protection business and is a subsidiary of Berkeley Berry Birch plc, the stock exchange-quoted financial services distribution group.

The club will be dual-branded under The Mortgage Alliance and Direct Protect banners. For those Direct Protect advisers looking to place mortgage business on behalf of their clients, the club offers access to a panel of over 20 lenders including all the big high street names. Advisers using the club will also be given free access to the Trigold sourcing system and various exclusive products.

Commenting on the move, Mark Evans, National Mortgage Manager for Scottish Provident said: “The Mortgage Alliance has grown fast over the past three years and this link-up with Direct Protect, a new and fast growing network, will help further develop and expand the services we offer. In terms of volume, Direct Protect is one of our top introducers and we are delighted to have them on board.”
