“NFU Mutual has enjoyed the benefit of a relationship with Future Proof Ltd since 2016, and during that time, the service received has been nothing short of excellent.
The dedication and customer-focus shown by David and his team is matched by their knowledge and expertise.
Future Proof’s panel of providers has enabled the placement of cover for some of our customers who have experienced trouble finding cover elsewhere due to medical conditions or high-risk hobbies.”
Testimonial from Graham Harvey, Head of Financial Services Distribution, NFU Mutual.
“AIG Life has worked with Future Proof Insurance since its inception in 2011 and we count them as one of our most trusted partners. We have been continuously impressed with their highly personalised approach to identifying customer need and providing holistic, quality protection advice. They really do put the customer first and always aim to find the best possible customer outcomes. They do not shy away from customers with impaired lives, but strive to find a tailored solution that meets their need, taking great care to explain how premiums have been calculated.
Future Proof’s website is user-friendly and their blogs provide quality, easy to access information on how customers with particular medical conditions can still get protection insurance. Their customer-first approach has been recognised by a number of industry and service awards, and we wish them continued success and recognition.”
Testimonial from Vicky Churcher, Intermediary Director, AIG Life
“When my client felt they had no other option, David stepped in and mentioned Futureproof.
The knowledge and expertise was second to none and I really felt like my client was well taken care of and had a plan now and in the future. ”
