As part of the agreement, Tenet Group’s advisers will have access to UnderwriteMe’s protection platform.

According to the group, this is designed to drive growth in its protection business across the network.

The partnership means that Tenet, and the firms it works with, will be able to quote, underwrite, compare and sell with ‘buy now’ prices from the majority of popular UK insurers on the protection platform.

The platform includes a single question set for multiple lives, products and insurers, which eliminates the need to re-key data.

It also offers a full integration with research experts Defaqto, allowing product comparisons.

Ben Wright, director of strategic development at Tenet, said: “Our aim at Tenet has always been to offer a broad range of products and services which cater for a variety of financial adviser and broker needs.

“We are always looking for innovative ways to add value to the firms we work with and believe the protection platform can certainly add another string to their bows.”

Phil Nash, director of sales at UnderwriteMe, added: “The protection platform is growing rapidly, with many of the UK’s most prestigious life insurance specialists using our software.

“The uptake of the platform throughout 2020 has been great to see with just over 250,000 applications submitted throughout the year so far.

“That’s more than a 40% uplift on the same period in 2019.”
