Industry body, Group Risk Development (GRiD) has announced health and protection insurance intermediary, Nugent Santé as its new member.
Having launched just four years ago, Nugent Santé has seen “rapid growth” and founder, Paul Nugent, wanted to be “part of a combined effort to promote the growth of the group risk industry as a whole”.
The company said as part of this drive, it’s “important” to Nugent Santé that it has access to the educational resources and knowledge offered by the body as it looks forward to participating in forums to help progress developments within the group risk industry and see the market thrive.
Nugent, managing director, Nugent Santé, said: “As we entered this new decade, we anticipated that we were going to see more emphasis on protection, and that was even before the current Covid-19 situation gave it additional prominence.
“It’s our aim to ensure all of our clients are fully protected and have a benefits package to attract new talent and engage a workforce, and we recognise that to ensure products develop in a relevant way, we need to be part of a collective effort with providers and advisers alike.”
Steve Bridger, chair of GRiD added: “It’s a real achievement that as an organisation we’re able to attract both the more traditional players in our industry as well as agile newcomers making a name for themselves.
“Ensuring the future penetration of group risk insurances requires input from all facets of our industry and for that reason, we’re delighted to welcome Nugent Santé, who will no doubt positively challenge the status quo with the energy of a young, fast growth business.”
