Coverage of recent Insurance Times events have proved a hit with online visitors over the past week and sent website traffic soaring. In particular, our photo galleries have sent users clicking through pages of images. Photos from the Insurance Times Leaders Forum struck a chord when they landed in the inbox of subscribers and it became the most clicked story on the website. The gallery, which included snaps of industry leaders such as AIG’s Lex Baugh, AXA’s Philippe Masso and Willis boss Brendan McManus, gave online visitors a taste of the action from the annual event held in London.

Almost rivaling the Leaders Forum were photos from Insurance Times’ first Breakfast Club, the first in a series of new quarterly networking events focused on topical issues in the insurance industry. These pictures showcased the morning session, held at The Gallery, Vinopolis, which focused on fraud. Full editorial coverage is also available online as well as other events, including the latest Claims Clinic.

Elsewhere on the site, the first broker acquisition made by Towergate in a considerable time was read by a staggering number of users, no doubt all wondering if consolidation was about to pick up? Recently, CCV picked up four brokers, a story that also featured in the top five.

Broker insurer NIG was creating headlines again with two senior appointments, most notably promoting Martin Hall to director of commercial underwriting. While reports that LV was set to merge with fellow friendly societies Royal Liver recived a stack of online coverage, and also crept in to the top five at Insurancetimes.co.uk.
