Is there a different approach to underwriting on Fastway?

The application and interactive questions asked within Fastway are new and may differ from the exact wording and ordering used in our former online system. When we designed Fastway we took advantage of industry research into these factors along with our own experience in this area.

Whilst the questions may be different, the underlying underwriting principles / philosophy within Fastway are the same as the former system.
