Zurich brings online revolution to mortgage advisers

Eti offers an integrated system which brings all the elements involved in the purchase and protection of a new property under one roof. Backed by the combined might of the life and general insurance businesses within Zurich, advisers are able to provide their clients with a complete portfolio of mortgage-related products, including buildings and contents insurance, competitive mortgage deals and protection quotations at point of sale.

Once the quotations have been accepted, sales transactions can also be completed on line (with the exception of some mortgage applications where the lenders still require paper-based documentation).

Andy Ferns, Sales Director at Zurich, says: "Eti is an integrated, easy to use system, which will reduce distributors' costs and associated risks. We believe our system gathers best practice elements from the marketplace and takes the process one step further to make Zurich one of the easiest providers to do business with. However, we are not complacent and will be working with advisers over the coming months to develop further improvements."
