Rachel Isles of Haven Life Insurance

Haven Financial Solutions has recruited the highly experienced Rachel Isles to its growing team in its insurance department.

Rachel has joined as a family and business protection specialist and brings 20 years’ experience.

Previously she worked as protection specialist with a mortgage company and prior to that spent years in a corporate role with Barclays.

Haven Life Insurance identifies specific risks for families and businesses and plans how best to mitigate them.

It provides mortgage life cover, critical illness cover, income protection, key person cover, shareholder protection and private health insurance.

Rachel said: “It is a pleasure to work for a company that aligns exactly with my experience, skills and ethos.

“The need for protection never goes away, but the coronavirus crisis has brought it into focus.

“One thing businesses have realised is how important their people are. Should a key worker or partner become ill or have to self-isolate it really can create huge problems.

“What I do for families and businesses is identify the risks and work out a plan to mitigate them and advise on insurance.

“It is often much cheaper than people realise and really does provide peace of mind. I don’t sell; I offer a series of options and advise on which would be best.

“No one wants to have to call on their insurance, but if they do they need to be confident that it is the right product. And providing the right product is what Haven Life Insurance does.”

Matt Thomas, managing director, said: “To be growing during this crisis reflects the increasing demand for protection.

“Rachel is qualified, has an impeccable financial services record and is driven and committed.

“She is passionate about providing the right protection and she is already proving a great fit for Haven Life Insurance.”

Matt founded the company after losing his father to an aggressive brain tumour, so has seen first-hand the devastating effect that a critical illness can have.

As well as life cover, Haven FS provides mortgages, health insurance and wills.
