As record temperatures continue to soar, it would appear that the hot weather is making life even harder for insurance brokers. Not only have they got a ‘Summer of Sport’ to contend with but the recent hot weather appear to be making day to day trading even harder. So here’s how IIGL are ‘keeping cool’ as the market ‘turns up the heat’.
Dean Surridge, Head of Construction, at Incorporated Insurance Group Limited (IIGL) explains ‘With all the great weather we have been having; we have seen a number of new enquiries where the holding broker is really struggling to get hold of the decision maker at both the insurer and the client. The summer months have always been a hard time for brokers, as manufacturers and contractors will often shut for a few weeks over August, which makes the timing crucial to get the renewals out of the way in the narrow window when the client is working.’
With all the good weather it would appear that people are not only taking more holidays but also with the sporting events like Wimbledon, The Ashes, The Lions Tour and the Tour De France, people are just not around and that is effecting some brokers ability to service their clients.
Dean continues ‘We have seen a number of risks where the broker is really struggling to get a rate out of the insurer in time to hit the window of opportunity where they can see the client before they close for the holidays. It’s great that our approach to providing our brokers with a quality services means that we have helped our brokers both win and retain clients’.
Mike Smith, CEO of IIGL, added ‘We are delighted that the investment we have made into both our online and back office systems allows brokers to have quotes and documentation when they need them. Dean and the team are doing a great job in helping our brokers as the pressure builds over the summer months’.
