Trigold and Norwich Union have announced that they are planning to launch a new integrated protection tool, built into Trigold's Prospector AAA mortgage sourcing platform, in August, 2008.

The protection tool will offer advisers hassle-free quotes and underwriting for life insurance. Norwich Union said that the indicative quote facility will not affect any existing arrangements advisers and their networks may have with the company or other insurers.

Louise Colley, head of marketing protection at Norwich Union, said: We see this partnership as a great opportunity to help plug the protection gap and allow mortgage advisers to generate additional sales revenue.
