’This is a badge of honour for Moonrock and highlights our commitment,’ says founder and chief executive 

Moonrock has been accepted as a member of the Managing General Agents Association (MGAA), a statement released yesterday (25 October 2023) said.

The drone specialist provides cover to pilots, such as recreational flyers and small commercial operators, across multiple industries.

Becoming an MGAA member means it will have access to the association’s resources, such as representation, education and training, branding and access to offers.

Simon Ritterband, founder and chief executive of Moonrock, said: “This is a badge of honour for Moonrock and highlights our commitment to operating in a fair and ethical way.

”It also offers us a great opportunity to play an active part in the insurance discourse and contribute to all the important discussions in the MGA space.”

FCA approval

This came after Moonrock received FCA approval to become an authorised insurance intermediary.

The MGA had been an appointed representative of broker Aston Lark, but the move means Moonrock can now trade independently. 

Now its an MGAA member, Moonrock will also sign the association’s code of ethics, which calls for high standards of behaviour from all members of the organisation.

Mike Keating, chief executive of the MGAA, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Moonrock to our growing MGAA membership, their business model typifies everything MGAs do so well in specialised segments.

“We look forward to working with them.”
