Aviva has confirmed a five-year deal with MGA Prestige Underwriting Services, which will add home insurance underwriting to existing motor insurance with this firm.

And these will be distributed through Prestige’s network, which includes 500 brokers and affinity partners. 

Phil Bayles, Aviva chief distribution officer, said: “It is great news that we are expanding our partnership with Prestige. We already have a strong relationship - having worked with them on motor - and this builds on that success and further demonstrates our commitment to growth through our broker personal lines business.”

Continually evolved

Meanwhile Alison Williams, managing director at Prestige Underwriting, agreed: “Prestige Underwriting has an established relationship with Aviva in the Northern Ireland Motor market and we are absolutely delighted to build on it with this five-year deal on our non-standard home product offering.”
