Simply the best: Three more awards confirm ARAG's premier credentials

24 November 2015

Specialist insurer ARAG has once again demonstrated the high regard in which it is held by its business partners, by winning three prestigious, independent awards. At the Underwriting Service Awards the company took the Legal Expenses Team of the Year award for the third year running plus also the Managing General Agent (MGA) award and like last year, the Underwriting Service Awards Team of the Year.

Votes were cast in a nationwide poll of professional insurance brokers and announced at a gala ceremony in London's Royal Garden Hotel attended by the UK's leading insurers. Now in their sixth year, the Underwriting Service Awards are unique.

They are based on large-scale objective input from UK commercial and specialist broking professionals, submitted through the annual Business Insurers Insight Study. Brokers graded the insurers they have worked with during the previous 12 months. These are some of the comments made by brokers about why they support ARAG;

“Strong support for the customer and the broker, flexible approach to writing business, access to decision makers and key contacts”

 “Flexibility, willingness to work together to create new products. Fairness.”

“Good lines of communication and regular contact from BDM. Claims handled swiftly and claims met”
 
“We are delighted that so many of our partner companies were either winners or shortlisted too”, comments Andy Talbot, ARAG Head of Sales. “It is very encouraging that over three years of huge turmoil in the legal services arena we continue to receive endorsement of our efforts to be the very best people to work with.

“The accolades are an outstanding tribute to everyone who has worked so hard to ensure we deliver on our promises, and in the most professional manner. As the courts system faces yet more changes, we believe ARAG is well-placed to provide affordable access to justice to everyone who has been disadvantaged by the actions of others. Our legal protection cover, emergency assistance products and advice services are available to millions of people through professional intermediaries either in addition to – or as part of – business, home, motor and landlord insurances”.
