Insurer encourages face-to-face business

Insurer Brit has launched a walk-in “Trading Floors” scheme, allowing broker partners to use its offices for meeting underwriters and clients face-to-face.

The centres, currently available in Brit’s Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham offices, provide internet access and refreshments for informal meetings.

Simon Cooter, UK Distribution Director at Brit Insurance, said: “Developing good relationships with brokers has been the cornerstone of Brit Insurance’s strategy in the UK market and continues to be our top priority. Our dedicated underwriting centres provide a comfortable environment in which to meet key decision makers and make it easier to trade. This trading floor area is a natural development of our commitment to bring underwriters closer to our broker partners.”

The scheme will be extended to other offices over the next year.
