Managing general agency Modus has appointed Davies Group to handle its claims across all lines.

Modus was launched early in 2015 by former Arthur J Gallagher insiders Simon Read, Scott Banks and Natasha Pettet.

The MGA specialises in underwriting and distributing household, landlords’ and commercial products through software houses and direct to brokers in the UK.

Davies said the win, which follows a competitive process, endorsed its strategy of providing bespoke claims solutions for brokers, MGAs and specialist insurers.

Darren Coombes, Chief Commercial Officer of the Davies Group said: “This is a great win for Davies Group at a time when more brokers and MGAs are seeking to use claims as a driver for their proposition.

“Modus clearly see the strategic importance of having a more bespoke approach to claims which matches clients’ needs and helps them succeed on their growth and retention ambitions.”
