Legal & General and First Trust Bank has agreed a ‘long term’ joint distribution agreement for a range of life insurance, investment and pension products.

Under the agreement First Trust’s financial consultants will sell Legal & General products throughout their branch network on an appointed representative basis, using Legal & General’s RDR model for Banks and Building Societies.

“This long term partnership will give First Trust Bank’s customers access to our broad range of competitive, value for money products,” said Chris Last, managing director, Legal & General Bank & Building Society Distribution.

“Continuing to provide financial advice to banking customers in a post RDR world is an important part of our distribution strategy and we are very pleased that First Trust Bank has selected Legal & General to be their partner. ”
