UK - The Ecclesiastical Insurance group has teamed up with Norwich Union to provide stakeholder pensions.
Ecclesiastical will now offer the Norwich Union stakeholder alongside its own range of financial products and will market it through its team of financial advisers.
Ecclesiastical’s general manager of the financial services division, Mark Goodale, said: “We want to offer our customers a quality stakeholder pension alongside the strong portfolio we already provide. Not only does this stakeholder represent a good deal but we consider the brand values of Norwich Union to be in keeping with our own ethos.”
