For both businesses and individuals, premium finance is a convenient alternative to paying premiums in one lump sum, allowing them to manage their finances more easily or free up capital for other uses. As well as benefiting your customer, using premium finance helps you manage your business more efficiently and reduces time spent on administration. You'll also gain a second income stream, with regular incoming payments and improved cash flow.

One of the oldest industries in the world is joining forces with Alzheimer's Society to tackle what is set to be the 21st century's biggest killer: dementia.

In the UK, someone develops dementia every three minutes. So many of us will know someone who is affected, whether a grandparent, parent, spouse or friend. Our health and social care systems are struggling to support the 850,000 people living with this dreadful condition, and with this number only set to rise, many families are being forced to face it alone.There is currently no cure for dementia, and few effective treatments.

Insurance United Against Dementia is a partnership between the insurance sector and Alzheimer's Society, the UK's leading dementia charity. Together, we are calling on the industry to unite against dementia by driving awareness of the condition and raising £10 million to support pioneering research programmes into care, treatments and a cure for dementia.

Alzheimer's Society is making history as a founding partner in the nation's first dedicated Dementia Research Institute. The funds raised by Insurance United Against Dementia will support this initiative and help deliver a step-change in the scientific understanding of dementia treatment and care.
