Finance North is the latest company to join group risk protection industry body GRiD, the organisation which raises awareness and understanding about the benefits of group risk products among employers and employees, encouraging best practice and working with government departments and regulators involved in group risk legislation.
Mark Roberts, head of Finance North said: ‘It is perfect timing for us to join GRiD. There appear to be very few firms who truly specialise in this niche area, and being keen to grow this part of our business, it is massively important to work closely with those who operate in the market: insurers, reinsurers and advisers.
‘Group protection is an area I very much enjoy, and it’s also very personal to me. As well as being directly authorised with the FCA, I also act as CEO for a national cancer charity, and so I understand the bigger issues that exist around areas such as regulation and compliance. I’m looking forward to making my contribution to the many challenges we face, not least regarding the importance of protection to both employers and employees.’
