For the third consecutive year, Insurance Times has given MGAs a star rating out of five, linked to their performance. This provides a practical tool to help brokers assess MGAs, as well as assists MGAs to benchmark their own performance.

The MGAs that attained the maximum five star accolade from brokers this year are MPR Underwriting, Renovation Underwriting, KGM Underwriting, Lorega, First Underwriting, Prestige Underwriting and Nexus Underwriting.

Out of the remaining 36 MGAs, brokers awarded 19 MGAs with an overall four star rating, 11 MGAs received a three star score and six MGAs were awarded two stars by their broker partners.

The MGA survey was open to UK brokers throughout June and August 2022. Brokers across the UK were asked to identify and rate the MGAs with which they have regularly placed business during the past 12 months.

Insurance Times’ head of research Savan Shah said: ”MGAs play a pivotal part in the insurance market and have been even more integral over the last 12 months of business activity. Their services, products and support have been so essential to brokers over the last year - maybe more so than ever before.”

Shah added that the report will help brokers to justify their selection of MGAs to clients, allow MGAs to benchmark themselves on service and support MGAs to improve their overall proposition.

“Thank you to all the brokers across the nation that came forward to participate in the survey - your views and feedback will surely steer the MGA market through challenging times over the next year,” he continued.
