Provident to underwrite affinity business


Motor insurer Provident Insurance has joined the motor panel of Equity Insurance Partnerships (EIP), the UK affinity business of Insurance Australia Group.

Halifax-based Provident will underwrite private motor policies for EIP’s affinity partners.

Provident’s head of broker distribution, Sue Coffey, said: “Equity has an impressive track record of building successful collaborations with high profile brands. Joining Equity’s panel is a great opportunity for us to broaden our distribution in the affinity insurance market.”

EIP’s insurer relationship manager, Jill Ritchie, said: “As one of the UK’s leading insurers, Provident is an excellent fit for our motor panel.

“The addition of Provident complements our existing panel, broadens our offering for our policyholders and strengthens the platform on which we’re building our desired panel.”
