MGA Peter Staddon -  Insurance Times

The Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) has exceeded the 100 member mark following the addition of commercial lines specialist Century Underwriting.

The total number of full MGA members now stands at 101, which represents more than £3.5bn of underwriting capacity. 

Advantage Underwriting, Direct Commercial, Portus Underwriting, Resolution Underwriting Partnership and Signature Underwriting have also joined recently as full MGA members.

MGAA managing director Peter Staddon (pictured) said: “Exceeding the 100 member mark is clear evidence that MGAs spread across the UK have given the MGAA a mandate to represent and campaign on behalf of this fast growing and important insurance sector.

“By working closely with the regulators and industry bodies over the past three years we have delivered a far better understanding of what MGAs actually are, how they operate and the contribution they make.  This process is, however, continual and must constantly evolve to ensure our members’ voices are clearly heard when policies are created and key decisions made that could impact their businesses.”

Century Underwriting managing director Guy Fraser said: “UK MGAs need a strong, united voice and the MGAA delivers exactly that. While only three years old its board and committees have already opened meaningful dialogues with our regulators that will help the sector to shape its own destiny.”
