Specialist underwriter MECON has been crowned the winner in Insurance Business’s Brokers on Underwriters survey in the construction market.
Construction is the first of five new categories Insurance Business has introduced in 2016, in response to feedback received in our inaugural survey.
Taking our first gold medal for construction, as determined by broker votes, is MECON Insurance.
Several survey respondents shared hugely positive feedback about the Sydney-based agency and its staff, with one broker telling us, “The MECON Underwriters really know their product. They are industry experts.”
Another broker similarly commented on the expertise of MECON’s underwriting team and said the agency offered “competitive premiums”, but also “superior cover”. In addition to recurring comments praising the MECON team, several brokers also reported a highly positive claims experience with MECON.
It’s hardly surprising therefore to see the agency emerge clear victors in the construction category for 2016.
Earning silver is Pen Underwriting, one of our multi-medal recipients in last year’s report. One broker described Pen’s Contract Works policy as a “tailored, industry-specific product with exceptional benefits”.
Another survey participant nominated Pen for the top product of the year based on both the broadness of the coverage offered and the approachability of the agency’s staff.
In third place, taking bronze, is ATC Insurance Solutions, who recently welcomed former Young Insurance Professionals Australasian president, Sampath Soysa, to its team.
