Commercial Express stands committed to trading in Northern Ireland

DATE: 17/09/2019


Commercial Express is leading the charge in Northern Ireland, investing in the region whilst other businesses shy away.

For the past eight years, a roadshow has been held in Belfast to celebrate the brokers in the region and to thank them for their support.

Commercial Express has continually been quoting business in Northern Ireland and the roadshow is just one way to demonstrate the company’s commitment to the area. All 30 schemes in the product suite quote NI postcodes, which is arguably in contrast to other insurers who generate somewhat mixed message by either declining or imposing terms.

The investment into Northern Ireland is further demonstrated by the appointment of an additional account manager who focuses on this specific area. Introducing Angela Thompson as the dedicated focus for the region shows a sign of intent. Along with the offer of free training either in person or via CE Learning: Online, the business is engaging with brokers and creating even stronger relationships.

Technical underwriting manager, Tom Bolstridge, said: “Commercial Express is committed to trading in Northern Ireland and we want to reiterate that all of our products are available to be quoted in this region.

“We would like to thank all of our NI brokers and we hope to continue working with you and building relationships.”

On September 6, the Northern Ireland roadshow 2019 took place at Pug Uglys, where a range of brokers were asked to share their views on the fact CE still trades in the region.

Brokers commented that CE are well regarded in the region and since the decision by Thistle to exit the NI market last year, brokers are seeing CE as the go to MGA. Other insurers could arguably be hiding behind the Decile 10, which looks at the low profit syndicates, as to why they should not trade in Northern Ireland.
