The news story 'Fury at schemes to pay introducers', (News, 10 March) incorrectly stated that CETA's 'introducer' schemes allow non-regulated advisers to sell general insurance.

CETA would like to clarify that we do not deal with non-regulated advisers; we only deal with directly authorised brokers or appointed respresentratives (ARs) of one of the 40 directly authorised IFA/Mortgage networks we work alongside and that the information released to the press was inaccurate.

The CETA Premium Club is aimed at regulated brokers who may be asked about general insurance products, for example caravan, pet, travel or commercial insurance, which the broker is either unfamiliar with or does not have access to via their network principal. In this circumstance, the broker can refer their client to CETA and we will provide advice and a recommendation to the client.
