The Right Mortgage and Protection Network welcome Vincent O’Connor as Head of Protection
Vincent O’Connor appointed as network’s new Head of Protection. In this new role, Vincent will lead the network’s protection offering to their members.
The Right Mortgage and Protection Network has been going from strength to strength and the appointment of Vincent further bolster’s the network’s growth.
Vincent brings over 25 years of protection experience to the network, joining The Right Mortgage from Royal London where he worked in a Protection Development and Technical role which saw him as a regular public speaker at conferences and events across the industry as well as a regular contributor to the trade press.
Vincent O’Connor began his career in financial services back in 1994 at Friends Provident working in several technology and protection related roles and then went on to set up his own mortgage and protection brokerage a few years later. His next role saw him join a large financial planning network to set up their Protection Academy where he worked closely with the adviser membership to help improve adviser skills, confidence and knowledge around protection advice and recommendation.
“I am delighted to be joining The Right Mortgage & Protection Network as Head of Protection where I want to bring fresh ideas, energy and focus to the subject of protection within the network.
Arranging mortgages has been one of the clearest and most obvious reasons for advisers to start the conversation with clients about protection because whilst a mortgage helps to get the home, ‘protection’ means the client won’t lose it, should the worst happen.
The Right Mortgage & Protection Network believe that proper advice by advisers creates the best client outcomes and my objective in this role is that when it comes to protection; advisers have what they need to continue to have meaningful protection conversations with their clients to help them understand the risks they face”.- Vincent O’Connor.
The network’s protection offering is their biggest area after mortgages. And although they offer in-house training, a dedicated online hub, webinars and more for their members at present, they will look to grow these areas further with Vincent onboard.
“With protection such an important area within our industry, now more so than ever, we are delighted to welcome Vincent onboard to really champion protection amongst our membership and beyond. I know he will be a very valuable member of the team and to the network’s future and we look forward to working with him”. – Martin Wilson, CEO at The Right Mortgage and Protection Network.
