Below is a list of the top UK Relevant Life insurers. We’ve also included the additional benefits each provider offers alongside the policy to help you make an informed decision.
However, to benefit from the favourable tax position it is very important to structure Relevant Life Insurance in the correct way making sure the appropriate trust is in place from the outset.
