The new deal with Close Brothers will see the partnership extended into the 2020s

Close Brothers Premium Finance (CBPF) and Be Wiser have announced the signing of a new long-term deal.

CBPF has been the exclusive provider of insurance premium finance for the customers of Be Wiser for the past 10 years.

But now, with the signing of this new deal, CBPF will provide finance well into the 2020s.

Be Wiser chairman Mark Bower-Dyke said: “In this world of Brexit, new regulation and market instability it is reassuring to know we are partnered by, in our view, the largest and best finance provider.

“Close Brothers Premium Finance are always ahead of the curve with their ongoing innovations, their ability to see the bigger picture and the way they keep our customers’ wellbeing at the centre of their processes. We look forward to working with them over the coming years.”

Sharon Bishop, chief executive of CBPF said: “Be Wiser is one of the best-known brokers in the UK insurance landscape, and Mark is one of the leading names in the industry. We are proud to be working with him and his team, and look forward to continuing this relationship.”
