IGI Expands Business to the UK Regional Broker Sector by Participating at the BIBA (British Insurance Brokers’ Association) Conference For the First Time

UK broker market integral to IGI’s growth ambitions

 

London, 8 May, 2018: International General Insurance Holdings Limited (IGI), the global specialist commercial insurer and reinsurer, will continue to build out its UK broker business in order to achieve its growth ambitions.

IGI will be exhibiting at the BIBA conference for the first time this year, and will be looking to raise awareness of the company’s expertise and diverse portfolio of specialty commercial insurance products to the UK broker market.

“The UK regional broker sector is an integral part of IGI’s long-term commitment to the UK market,” said Chris Mauduit, Class Underwriter, Professional and Casualty Lines. “We are working on building out underwriting teams, business lines and niche products in core markets such as the UK. The UK broker market is a huge opportunity for us, which is why we are putting more effort into helping brokers understand what we can do for them and their clients.”

At BIBA, IGI will be promoting four products. IGI’s Denial of Access policy was launched last year to cover small to medium-sized enterprises in the UK against closure and business interruption following terrorist attacks. IGI will also be exhibiting its new and updated products in other business lines, including: Inherent Defects, Legal Expenses and Investment Managers.

 “We are working in an extremely competitive environment and we want to differentiate ourselves by the high quality of service we provide to our clients and brokers,” said Adam Safwat, Vice President, Underwriting & Business Development at IGI. “As IGI continues on its path of profitable growth, it is essential that we maintain the highest standards in the calibre of our staff and in the quality of the products we bring to market.”

IGI has been increasing its presence in London after Andreas Loucaides joined as UK CEO in 2015. The company has ambitious plans to profitably expand its profile from its Middle Eastern roots into an international operation, writing business worldwide. IGI currently has offices in London, Dubai, Amman, Bermuda, Casablanca and Kuala Lumpur.
