Personal Lines Broker of the Year Award
The Personal Lines Broker of the Year Award is one of the largest awards within the insurance sector. The purpose of the award is to recognise and celebrate excellence and innovation within the UK insurance industry. The main focus of this category is to identify stand-out UK brokerages, setting the standard for others to follow in the personal lines market. There were an independent panel of experts who were judging and they were paying particular attention to the outstanding achievement of UK Brokers and honouring them. Growth in a competitive market was also something the judges were looking for and they needed business to demonstrate that they were able to adapt in challenging conditions. The Personal Lines Broker Awards was open to any insurance broker that provides insurance to individuals and this year they received the highest number of submissions in history.
The award ceremony that took place on the 11th September 2020 and was a virtual one, unlike previous years due to Covid-19, to celebrate the successes of the insurance sector and to announce the winners.
We were announced earlier today as winners and everyone is absolutely delighted to be recognised by the insurance industry, by being awarded the Personal Lines Broker of the Year Award 2020.
Claire Leech, Director at Assist Insurance Services Ltd commented, “When we were nominated for the Personal Lines Broker of the Year Award and then confirmed as finalists earlier this year, we were absolutely delighted, especially since there were so many submissions. To actually win this award really is an achievement we are extremely proud of. Putting our customers first has been paramount within our business and even more so since Covid-19. Even when something might not appear to be commercially in the best interests for the business, if it is right for the customer, then it is the right thing to do. It is that which makes it commercially viable. Customers support businesses which put them at the forefront of a business. We are so passionate about the way we treat and look after our clients and winning this award has reinforced that our approach of sticking to traditional service values, truly is the right thing to do.
