Wesleyan Assurance Society, which specialises in insuring the medical, dental, legal and teaching professions, has appointed Bupa Individual Protection (BIP) to its protection panel.
From this month, BIP life and critical illness products, which have recently attained a five star accreditation from Defaqto, will be available to the society’s members.
According to Callum Girvan, Wesleyan’s Director of Marketing, the move will form the basis of a strong working relationship with Bupa.
The society was founded in 1842 by members of a Birmingham Wesleyan Methodist Church and earlier this month received its fourth consecutive ten-out-of-ten rating in the Cazalet Consulting With Profits rating report.
As at 31 December 2007, the Wesleyan Group had in excess of £4 billion of funds under management, at which point equities and commercial property as a proportion of total assets invested stood at 82%.
