The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has renewed its Credit Management and Bonds Scheme with Perkins Slade Limited.

The scheme has proved a success with members since its launch three years ago by providing affordable cover and access to expert advice on credit and bond risks. The scheme benefits BIBA members by enhancing the customer offering and providing an additional revenue stream and cross-selling opportunities, whilst also offering competitive commission and marketing support.

Darren Felsenstein, Credit Development Executive at Perkins Slade, commented: “We are delighted to have been appointed as BIBA’s endorsed provider of credit management and bond products for a further three years.  We have engaged and worked with members considerably during our tenure in order to enhance their customer proposition on credit and bond risks. Our re-appointment will allow us to continue and build on the work we have done up until now.”
