Towergate has secured a three-year extension on its affinity deal with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).

Towergate Broking chief executive Amanda Blanc said the deal was part of a wider strategy to “grow significantly affinity deals over the next 12 months”.

The extension means FSB Insurance Services, which is provided by Towergate, will continue to broker products on behalf of the federation’s 200,000 members.

“As a local broker we understand the importance of giving a personal service to the small businesspeople which is based on trust,” said managing director of FSB Insurance Services Tim Lazenby.
