advo and ellenor working together

what’s inside issue #22 Welcome to the Summer 2017 edition of advocate, the quarterly digital magazine from advo. In this edition, we look at some new changes at advo. Sue Smith has been appointed as Head of Private Clients with our Oxford office now dedicated to managing individual health insurance contracts. advo’s work with ellenor, our chosen charity continues with our staff busy raising money and helping out at the children’s Summer Party. We also highlight new industry recognition with our IT Director, Kevin Crew, included in the 2017 Data 50 listing and awards where we were highlighted as one of the very few UK financial companies to be awarded this honour. There is an exclusive interview with Axa’s Global Healthcare CEO, Tom Wilkinson,

where similarities of service and client support become clear between our two organisations. We look at how advo staff got on at the annual ‘Bupa challenge’ and reminisce with one of our Directors in a copy of an article first published in Cover magazine. We also highlight an important petition to Government by trade association, AMII, to reduce Insurance Premium Tax which is pushing up the cost of essential health insurances. Included also is some important updates on Tribunal fees and employees after Brexit. Remember that all editions of advocate magazine are free to read online at advogroup
