As of April 1, Ecclesiastical will compete with existing panel members to underwrite Home & Legacy’s Principal and Prestige Home products.
Commenting on the partnership, Adrian Ewington, underwriting manager at Home & Legacy, said: “We are extremely confident that the addition of Ecclesiastical will help facilitate profitable growth by giving brokers greater choice and flexibility – increasing their opportunities to win and retain clients in this growing market.”
He added: “Our unique panel arrangement provides broker partners with access to exclusive rates from a number of top insurers – with Ecclesiastical onboard our quotes will benefit from their flexible and competitive approach. This is the latest example of our ongoing investment in our products, pricing and sales and distribution capabilities to meet the needs of our brokers.”
Tony Bloomer, schemes and affinities director at Ecclesiastical, said: “Home & Legacy’s broad broker base and commitment to profitable growth makes them an ideal partner in the mid and high net worth markets. This arrangement builds on our expertise in this sector and is line with our strategy of targeting growth in non-standard markets.”
