1 Answer Network has reached £50m in GWP with the addition of a number of new members.

Among the personal lines broker network's new members are Ashmore, Bexley, Welling Insurance, Scotland's Integrity Insurance and Croydon specialist childcare broker, Morton Michel.

Paul Muir, managing director of 1 Answer Network, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have reached such a fantastic milestone so early in our development. We set out last year to offer a real hand of support to high street brokers wanting a great system with real blue chip insurers that shared our vision.

“We have a fantastic relationship with the insurers and also the add-on product providers which is giving real ‘value added' to both our members and also their clients. Significant growth and profitability has already been seen in some of the first members to join us and we are focused on sustainable growth in 2007.

"We have never wanted to pay mere lip service as a network and have a true involvement in our member's success. We are excited by the prospects that the personal lines market can have and feel we have a part to play in realising this growth area for them. We truly believe that there is a future for the broker and see this as a further endorsement that we have the right recipe to help in that cause.”

Muir is looking forward to threefold growth in GWP next year.
