Brokers to get dual agencies at ABC and Highway.

LV= has written to 700 brokers to offer them dual agency agreements with its broking arm ABC Insurance and the recently acquired Highway business.

LV= bought Highway in October as it seeks to become a top five insurer in its chosen markets by 2012.

ABC’s product range includes commercial products for the licensing trade, shops, offices and surgeries, plus commercial combined insurance.

Highway also offers personal lines and commercial products including car, fleet, truck, motorbike and home insurance.

Phil Bunker, managing director of the LV= broker division, said: “By offering dual agency agreements to our brokers we will enable them to compete more effectively and offer a wider range of products to their customers.”
