As an association one of our key aims is to ‘Work proactively to improve the MGAs sector’s professionalism stability and competitiveness’ and in doing so we provide a platform to connect MGAs with Capacity providers. In 2019, we held a new and improved Capacity Exchange, a speed dating-style networking event that allowed Capacity Providers and Seekers to discuss whether there was an opportunity to partner. At the event, we hosted 25 Market Practitioners and over 50 MGAs who enjoyed a valuable opportunity to discuss capacity.
In 2020, we are once again exploring what options are available at hosting a similar event. This includes a virtual platform allowing all parties to have confidential conversation from the privacy of their own home. With the challenges of mass gatherings, having such an option is essential in engaging with and delivering benefits to all of its members.
