Managing general agents ARO Underwriting and Broker Direct
have entered into a deal to provide residential and commercial property owner’s products for Broker Direct
’s 750 broker network members.
James Bright, ARO’s managing director, told Insurance Business
the quote-and-buy system had met with good response from brokers. “It has been complimented by every broker who’s been on it as being simple to use, very clear and it does what they need – which is get a quote, produce documents and put a quote on cover,” he said. “What differentiates it from a landlord’s perspective is the multi-property function - that enables a broker to put an insured onto the system with anything up to 25 properties on one form. It’s a lot easier for the broker to use on multi-property. It offers the full range of property owners’ products and it delivers them quickly easily and efficiently with A-rated capacity behind them.”
Brokers can now access ARO’s system via Broker Direct
’s website, effective immediately. The deal’s offerings include multi-property residential landlord, commercial property owners, blocks of flats and unoccupied property insurance.
Terry Stanley, CEO of Broker Direct
said: “I am delighted we have been able to agree access to the ARO product range for our brokers. They are competitive products, backed by ‘A-rated’ security and serviced through a cutting edge, stand-alone quote and buy system.”
