Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) member NuVenture International Ltd has launched Nivante, a new MGA specialising in the UK care sector.
Known officially as Eminence Risk Services and an appointed representative of Davies MGA Services, Nivante will provide combined insurance products including liability, property damage, and medical malpractice to care organisations for adults and children.
“We are excited to announce the launch of Nivante, and we’re passionate about making a difference in the care sector and offering greater choice to our brokers and their clients,” said Nivante managing director Jade Knight and co-founder Melissa Kalsi in a joint statement.
“Care providers have faced huge challenges, and the pandemic has undoubtedly been one of the toughest challenges yet. We are dedicated to engaging with the sector and the regulators to continuously innovate and develop our products and services to make life a little easier for care providers when making their insurance arrangements.”
Partnered with A-rated capacity, Nivante is keen on providing a new market alternative for care risks while also offering a technology-led approach.
The founding duo, who are underwriting experts in the UK care sector, added: “We have worked to bring this project to fruition with the support of the NuVenture team. Inspired by the leaders profiled in this year’s National Women’s Day, we are especially proud to have achieved this milestone as female leaders and hope our journey will inspire others to do the same.”
Meanwhile NuVenture chief executive Andy Colbran commented: “Nivante is the second MGA launched by NuVenture, and we’re pleased to provide a fresh insurance option to a sector of the market which is experiencing capacity constraints.
“Jade Knight and Melissa Kalsi are exactly the kind of experienced underwriters that we want to bring into the NuVenture group, and I’m excited to work with them as they bring their new proposition to the market.”
