Fidelity Life and nib have confirmed their joint quoting and application capabilities for advisers will continue from 1 July 2019.
nib products will continue to be supported in Fidelity Life’s Apollo and eApp services.
The Fidelity Life-nib paper multi-app will also be maintained and nib forms and collateral will still be available from Fidelity Life’s Adviser Centre.
The two insurers announced in March that their partnership of five years would be changing from July this year. (see: Fidelity Life and nib Joint Services for Advisers to Continue…).
Fidelity Life Chief Distribution Officer, Adrian Riminton, says they know advisers value a combined risk and health offer and the decision to continue joint services reflects this.
“We want to keep making it easy for advisers to do business with us,” said Riminton.
“So we’re pleased to offer advisers service continuity during a time of significant change in our industry – ultimately helping them to deliver good customer outcomes,” he said.
nib New Zealand Chief Executive Officer, Rob Hennin, added: “We remain committed to working with advisers both directly and through our joint services with Fidelity Life to help ensure their clients have health cover that protects them and their families.”
nib stated that from 1 July 2019, advisers with any questions about nib products and health insurance in general, should contact their nib adviser partner manager.
