General insurance network, CETA, has signed a deal with online trading platform, Trigold, which will allow brokers direct access to its range of mortgage-related insurance products, writes Ben Marquand.
In a trial, brokers who use Trigold’s system can source quotes from CETA via Trigold’s system. The new system has been designed to input information during the mortgage sourcing process to generate insurance quotations.
CETA has 16 buildings and contents policies provided by a panel of 10 insurers.
David Quick, managing director of CETA, said: ‘Brokers are ideally placed to market insurance products. Buying a house is stressful, so supplying an insurance quote alongside a mortgage recommendation makes life easier for clients and increases the chances of them taking out a policy as it is one less thing to worry about. The partnership with Trigold will enable members to compete with high street banks and buildings societies.’
If the trial is successful a future development is planned in which Trigold’s mortgage quotation system would be available to CETA’s 3,000 members.
