Mortgage and protection network, HL Partnership, has appointed Ian Pratt to help drive its protection business.
He is tasked with assisting member firms through training and ongoing support to develop protection business alongside their primary mortgage proposition to clients.
Pratt, who joins from Legal & General, received his protection grounding at AMP Pearl before joining L&G where he was involved in recruitment, sales and skills management.
In the last six years was a strategic manager, responsible for running teams training and supporting ARs in many of the UK’s networks.
He joins former L&G colleague, Steve Fallon, who joined HLP last year to develop the network’s protection support for its members.
Shaun Almond, HLP’s managing director, said: “Protection is a fundamental part of the advice process. HLP is committed to ensuring that our members, while helping clients with their mortgage needs, have the confidence and support to maximise the opportunities to bring the protection narrative to every customer.
“We are delighted to welcome Ian, who will, alongside Steve Fallon, play an important role in further inspiring our members to fully embrace the protection proposition.”
