Gresham Underwriting (GUL) are pleased to announce the launch of their new Sports and Social Clubs product available on their online quote system.
The MGA launched the product in early June to a select panel of brokers before launching to their wider broker base of 650 + broking houses to ensure it met not only their needs but those of their clients. The product has been developed following feedback from their broker partners who wanted more options in the market outside of schemes and affinities allowing them to place business direct with the underwriter rather than often acting as a sub broker.
The product allows brokers access to another market and includes a wide range of covers designed for this sector of business but with the flexibility to consider any specific requests that may arise.
Product Manager Mick Husband commented:
“We at Gresham Underwriting place our broker partners and their clients at the centre of everything we do. We have an open dialogue with our network and have listened when they asked us to research the Sports and Social Clubs sector. We found that a high proportion of organisations within this sector trust their local broker to place their insurances, however there is a lack of viable options for brokers outside of schemes which often command high commission levels which in the end has to be paid for by the client.”
The product is one of several planned for 2019 and was developed by the in-house Tasker Technology Team, the resource provided by Tasker Insurance Group of which GUL is part of.

Chief Underwriting Officer Robert Munden concluded:
“People are a fundamental part of our business. Being an MGA allows us the flexibility to develop products which meet our brokers requirements, however without the right team in place this is not always utilised to the fullest potential. We now have a fantastic team of people and resource which enables us to maximise on opportunities for our brokers. Mick Husband’s expertise has allowed the technical development of the product, whilst our Underwriter’s personal relationships with our brokers has meant we were able to open a dialogue for what they really needed and tailor the product accordingly.”
