THE Insurance Policy Trading Company of Godalming, Surrey, is offering a broking service to investors looking to buy or sell second-hand endowment policies.
IPTC offers would-be sellers a free valuation service and, where appropriate, negotiates with the issuing office to see if the terms of the policy can be amended. It also handles the legal aspects of assigning the policy.
Buyers can select from policies already on the books or specify the type they are looking for. The broker's margin, inclusive of costs, is typically 10 to 12 per cent of the valuation. For details, phone 0483 427575.
TSB says its new Tessa rate, at 7.25 per cent, is the best variable product available, beating all the national high-street banks and building societies. See local branches for details.
