Pulse EU Update – April 2022

Things continue to move quickly in respect of our European operations, we have been trading since 1st November 2021 and have made great strides in growing our offering.

We can now confirm that we have registered a new trading style for Classic Financial Solutions (CFS), which means that going forward our European Life, Specialty and Sports and Leisure business will trade as Pulse Europe. We are working hard on the new websites for both CFS and Pulse Europe and will shortly be updating our policy and other documents to reflect the change.

Ben Pailthorpe recently visited Dublin to meet with brokers based there and to promote Pulse Europe’s products. It was a very positive trip and will hopefully be the first of many as we look to grow our presence in Ireland. We can currently offer bespoke Personal Accident, Travel and Sports & Leisure covers to Irish and other European based brokers, we can turn around quotes and bind extremely quickly.

In respect of the PA and Travel cover we are happy to quote on almost all risks, from office workers to oil & gas, bands and film productions. We are happy to tailor are policies as much as possible to your client’s requirements.

Unfortunately, there will be a delay until we can offer all of our specialist Life products.

However, we are delighted to confirm that Accidental Death cover, written through Lloyd’s of London or Lloyd’s Brussels, is available for clients who may be unable to obtain life cover through the standard markets. Whilst it is not a complete replacement for life cover, it provides important protection at a very reasonable cost for most insureds. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We remain committed to offering full life cover for people with pre-existing health conditions in the EU, and are working tirelessly towards that goal, we can only apologise for the continued delay and we share the frustration that many of our partners feel.  We will provide an update as soon as the full range of life insurance products are available.

The news has been dominated recently by the situation in Ukraine. Pulse can offer PA cover to journalists or aid workers travelling into Ukraine for both UK and EU based companies or individuals. We can also put clients in touch with companies who can (and have already) arranged evacuation from Ukraine. If you want more information please contact our Specialty Team for UK and international based risks or bpailthorpe@classic-fs.com for EU based risks.
