Client Testimonial

I play rugby every week, it keeps me fit and I still enjoy playing even at 45! My wife isn't as keen as she is always worried incase I injure myself and need to take time off work, im a self employed plasterer so dont get any sick pay. I have life insurance but this does not cover accidents and broken bones so when I saw what Trade Shield offered I jumped at the chance as it covers everything I need. Mr E Clark - Leeds

Client Testimonial

I started looking into cover as one of my pals got badly injured while playing rugby. I saw first hand how both he and his family suffered financially with the loss of his income for 4 months, im self employed so cant take this risk. I cant praise Trade Shield highly enough as they managed to source me income protection and accident insurance which covers everything including while playing rugby.
