The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) will reveal the findings of recent research at an upcoming virtual event, ‘The New Protection Challenge’.

The research was carried out by Opinium, commissioned by AMI, L&G and Royal London, and involved 5,000 UK adults and included a survey designed for mortgage and protection advisers.

The virtual event will be conducted on 4 November 2020, from 9am until 9:45, and is open to both AMI members and non-members.

The event will be accompanied by a report with features from AMI’s chief executive Robert Sinclair, sponsors L&G and Royal London, and Kevin Carr, chief executive of Protection Review and co-chair of the IPTF.

Sinclair said: “This event marks the relaunch of AMI’s ‘Viewpoint’ publication series.

“We decided to focus on protection as the inaugural topic, as we recognise that this is an important area of advice for mortgage intermediary firms.

“We recognise that there are many established groups who already focus on protection and carry out excellent work. Our aim is to not detract from this, but rather support and enhance it.

“Collaboration is important for our industry and we look forward to working alongside other protection groups, to meet the common goal of ensuring the correct consumer outcomes.”
