Personal lines network, 1 Answer Network, is to target high street brokers in Kent and Sussex in a major recruitment drive to find 250 companies.

The company is also planning to target customers of Brokersure, which Cox Insurance closed down last year.

Existing customers will be totally phased out by June.

The network will operate with the CDL software platform and with the support of endorsing insurers NIG, Legal and General, Fortis and KGM.

1 Answer managing director Paul Muir said, "We have decided the best way to launch our network effectively is by adopting a regional approach to membership.

"Our aim is to empower our members to become more profitable by providing them with an attractive range of support services."

1 Answer Network will offer access to premium finance deals, claims services, business and IT training and marketing.
