This 2 minute video explains what we could do for you.

We only talk to clients about their Protection needs which means there is no risk of cross-selling. It helps to ring-fence your clients with all potential leads being referred back to you.  Here at Future Proof we’re passionate about Protection, we help clients to:

  • underpin their investments against the threat of dying or critical illness
  • protect their income
  • cover any mortgages, business debts and potential IHT liabilities
  • or simply to provide for their family.
  • NFU Mutual Testimonial

    “At NFU Mutual, we recently upgraded our protection offering, to provide an improved proposition for our clients.  Our team identified that there could be a period of up to 4 months during a reorganisation where we would be unable to deliver life insurance, critical illness or income protection advice. We approached Future Proof who have an excellent reputation for customer service, professional advice and efficient business practices. We place our customers at the heart of our proposition and after completing a rigorous due diligence process, we were satisfied that Future Proof would be able to provide an outsource service which we, and our customers, could rely upon.

    Our projected business levels were exceeded by 300%, even so Future Proof provided every client with impeccable service and transparent advice. SLA’s were achieved and we were provided with regular MI.

    We actively sought client feedback, with many confirming they were very impressed throughout their dealings with Future Proof. We think that this excellent service was partly responsible for the unexpected number of enquiries being passed over to Future Proof, and provided our advisers with the peace of mind that their clients would be in good hands.

    We have been so impressed with Future Proof’s ability to deliver such a high level of service in exceptional circumstances that we have decided to extend our relationship.

    We would recommend the services of Future Proof to anyone who is considering outsourcing for Protection advice to a 3rd party specialist.”

    Testimonial from Trevor King, Head of Financial Services Distribution, NFU Mutual

  • AIG Life Testimonial

    “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

     

  • Customer Testimonials

    “During the course of arranging insurance for me, I had on-going medical conditions lasting almost 12 months and covering 4 different disciplines. Throughout this period the staff at Future Proof were consistently positive and supportive despite rejections from major insurers. Eventually, they were able to secure the insurance I needed and acted in a thoroughly professional manner throughout.”

    Paul Peacock, November 2016

    “Everyone I have had conversations with at Future Proof over the last few years, David Mead, Sarah Mead, Amy Whittington, has been very friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. In trying to get life insurance, which hasn’t been the easiest task, they have kept me informed all the way through, and been kind and empathetic with the long list of medical questions which are sometimes hard to talk about. I felt they really wanted to do the best they could for me. Thank you Future Proof.”

    Serena Watts, November 2016
