Celebrating the Regional Champions – Broker Expo Leeds 2017
18 August 2017
With the minds of some within the market on their upcoming annual summer holidays, the team from Barbican Protect is planning for anything but a quiet or relaxing summer!
Following a successful BIBA Conference in Manchester earlier this year, we have continued to work hard to help our brokers win more business. The team and I met a wide range of brokers, many concerned about the support that they receive from some of the more traditional insurance companies and the increasing application of a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
We continue to see a great deal of competitive activity in the market – much of it driven by a lack of understanding and appreciation of the individual needs of clients and the risks that impact their sectors. Clients struggle to see why some in the insurance market cannot better understand their issues - I totally appreciate their frustrations.
Since BIBA, we have continued to invest time supporting our brokers; listening to them and finding out what kind of support and relationship they want from Barbican Protect – sharing knowledge, adapting and building upon our agile and dynamic underwriting support. The success of our proposition as an MGA, centred on working with brokers to make a difference to their businesses and delivering long-term profitability to our carriers, still generates real interest.
As we continue to align our growth to the success of our supporting brokers, we will be attending the Broker Expo in Leeds on September 21st – looking to meet our existing brokers as well as seeking to help those trapped by the ‘one size fits all’ approach.
So, if you are looking for an underwriter that has great insight and knowledge of its markets and is willing to share that with you, come and speak with us on the Lloyd’s stand and learn how we can make a real difference to your business.
