Tom Fish

The Right Mortgage & Protection Network and DA Club have today (2nd February 2024) announced the appointment of a new Protection Development Manager.

Tom Fish joins the business with immediate effect and will be supporting all member firms to ensure they secure the most out of the protection opportunities that exist and the full range of products advisers have access to through The Right Mortgage.

Reporting to Director, Amanda Wilson, Tom will be working directly with advisory firms, highlighting the full protection panel available to them, the training and support offered in this product space, the team of sales development managers they can access, plus the raft of webinar and face-to-face sessions they can attend which cover off the protection opportunity and how to make the most of it.

Tom joins from The Right Advice where he was a protection adviser, supporting individuals, families and businesses to ensure they had the right cover; prior to this he held a similar role at Strathon Park Financial from 2016 to 2022. He has also worked extensively within the estate and lettings agency sector.

Tom’s appointment follows the launch late last year of The Right Mortgage’s Company Protection Hub, designed to support advisers who work with corporate clients, including how best to protect them and their owners.

Tom will be available at this month’s Monthly Sales Focused Webinar on protection which will include: Unum talking all things group protection; Tony Moore of Moore Health and Protection explaining how he generates business; plus all those who attend have the opportunity to ask questions in the dedicated Q&A session.

Amanda Wilson, Director & Shareholder at The Right Mortgage, commented:

“Protection is a key area for The Right Mortgage and we are focused on ensuring we have a ‘best in class’ proposition to be able to offer our member firms.

This is vitally important in a Consumer Duty environment where advisers are expected to cover off a variety of consumer needs, not just the mortgage.

We are very pleased to be able to bring someone of Tom’s experience and skillset on board; prior to this role he was a protection adviser himself so he is fully aware of, and immersed in, the sector, plus knows how to secure and grow business in this area, knowledge he’ll be able to impart to our firms.

It’s a key, strategic role for The Right Mortgage to fill and I would urge all our members to seek Tom out to see how he can specifically support their protection advice needs.”

Tom Fish, Protection Development Manager at The Right Mortgage, said:

“For the last eight years, I have been focused on providing clients with the best advice in the protection space and ensuring they have the right cover available to them at any one time.

I’m very pleased to be able to join The Right Mortgage in a role which allows me to share this experience with our member firms, and which gives me a chance to highlight the market-leading protection proposition we have available to them and their clients.

Protection should play a key part in every advice business and I’m looking forward to ensuring all our member firms are aware of the opportunity that exists for them with The Right Mortgage.”
