Paradigm Protect has announced it has added Scottish Widows Protect to its protection panel.

Members of the protection proposition for advisory firms can now access the Scottish Widows range, following its re-entry into the sector.

Scottish Widows’ protection products cover both personal protection – including life cover, whole of life cover, life with critical illness cover and critical illness cover - as well as business protection.

Mike Allison, head of protection at Paradigm, said directly authorised advisers wanting access to Scottish Widows Protect products via Paradigm Protect can apply for an agency.

Mr Allison said: “Scottish Widows is one of the biggest brands in the UK market and we are very pleased to see it back in the adviser protection space.

“In keeping with the Paradigm philosophy, we are delighted to assist members by providing access to the best product providers, at the best commercial terms available in our sector.

“We have been assured that, after a long period of absence, Scottish Widows will have a highly competitive product and service offering for advisers.”
