Plum’s three core products now available from Irish brokers

Household underwriting agency Plum has started writing non-standard and mid-net-worth (MNW) business in the Republic of Ireland.

The expansion follows the introduction of its HomeWorks policy to Ireland at the end of 2013.

Irish brokers can now obtain terms for Plum’s Amethyst and Flex products as well as HomeWorks, meaning that its three core home products are now available in the country.

Amethyst is Plum’s mid-net-worth offering, while Flex caters for difficult to place or non-standard risks.

Plum managing director David Whitaker said: “While the standard home insurance market in the Republic of Ireland is well catered for, brokers are struggling to place their specialist and non-standard risks.

“During last year’s HomeWorks roll-out many brokers asked if we could give them access to Flex and Amethyst and we are delighted to have been able to fill this gap so quickly.”
