Markerstudy is already welcoming new agencies, following its agreement to partner with A M Best A- rated Accredited Insurance on its bespoke fleet products.
Dave Rich, Head of Fleet at Markerstudy since March 2021, and formerly Head of Underwriting for ten years at LV=, comments: “We’re committed to the London market wholesale channel and hugely passionate about helping brokers place bespoke fleet business. With A- rated capacity from Accredited, the door is now open and I’m looking forward to reinstating old relationships, and writing business with new wholesale broker partners”.
With a specialist bespoke fleet underwriting team headed up by Dave Smallman, and Helen Greenfield at the helm of the fleet operations team, Markerstudy will be broadening their product and service offering, with a wide acceptance appetite and particular interest in private car fleets.
“We’re delighted to further strengthen our partnership with Accredited”, says Gary Humphreys, Chief Underwriting Officer at Markerstudy Group. “The wholesale fleet market has huge potential for us, and it’s personally rewarding to renew our historical ties with the Lloyd’s market”.
