It looks like PIB Group is busy making sure everything is in its right place at the rapidly growing enterprise.
Hot on the heels of the creation of Q Underwriting Services Ltd – the consolidated form of managing general agents aQmen Underwriting Services, TFP Schemes, and Thistle Underwriting Services – is the introduction of Q Property Underwriting Services.
The new specialist commercial team have been developing its proposition since the start of 2019. Designed to provide a technical and personal approach to underwriting commercial combined, non-standard or complex commercial property risks, business interruption, and packages, the team was set up in response to brokers’ feedback.
Establishing the unit is seen as a move away from barriers that prevent brokers from engaging easily with those in charge of making underwriting decisions.
“Q Property further strengthens our bespoke, underwriter-led offering for brokers, alongside high-risk liability in Thistle Underwriting and commercial fleet in TFP Schemes,” said Q Underwriting chief executive Bernard Mageean, who described Q Property leader Damian Cannings as an expert.
According to Mageean, the team’s work has been well received by brokers.
“We are underwriters first – we look at every risk and do more than simply employ tools and computer programmes,” commented Cannings.
“In a marketplace where clients do not always receive the service and support that they deserve, we are keen to add a personal touch and look for opportunities to write business, enabling brokers to win and retain commercial clients.”
