Mental health resilience – the role of the protection industry (and a jam jar)

by Protection Review 13/05/19

In this guest blog, Justin Harper, Head of Protection Marketing at LV= looks at mental health and the role of the protection industry. I’m not sure Alastair Campbell gets many mentions in Protection Review – perhaps he should? If you haven’t already, I recommend you read his Sunday Times article in which he discusses his own mental health, the fact that he rates his daily mental health on a 1 to 10 scale, and the fascinating role a jam jar plays in managing his symptoms.   His article, and the fact that this week is Mental Health Awareness Week got me…

We need to talk about… advertising

by Protection Review 25/03/19 Comment

The latest in our regular series looking at hot topics. Deliberately provocative, we're trying to start a debate. This time, we need to talk about... advertising. A couple of recent newspaper articles condemning protection providers for being harsh on claimants, raise the issue of promotion once again. Reacting to the negative articles, spokespeople are quick to point out we pay 97% of claims, and that the “nasty” media should write some positive stories for once.
