The awards are voted for by the people at LifeSearch, based on their day-to-day experiences of working with these companies, so the winners can feel extremely proud. We congratulate them all."
LifeSearch also announced its financial results for the year ending August 2015, and reported an 8% increase in pre-tax profit to £1.1m.
Tom Baigrie, founder and chief executive of LifeSearch, said: "While we strive to do all we can to grow the market, in reality, our efforts cannot yet be of a scale able to buck the flat trend, so we today challenge insurers to put at the heart of every strategic discussion they have with us from now on, just what they are doing to grow the protection market. Collectively, we must work out how protection becomes genuinely relevant to the man in the street once more."
