2019: The Biggest Year Yet for Bollington Underwriting


It’s been a huge year for Bollington Underwriting, with the launch of new MGA Holava helping us to achieve over £15m GWP of business – and counting – in 2019.

We’ve welcomed new brokers from across the country.  We’ve met lots of you out on the road.  And while we’ve always been famed for our wheels-based insurance, we’ve developed new schemes for property owners and craft breweries – amongst others – too.

Welcome to Holava Underwriting

With the winter wind howling and temperatures now on the keen side, summer seems a long time ago already. But it was a significant time for Bollington as we introduced additional A-rated capacity to our line-up with the new MGA, Holava Underwriting.

While already providing a winning selection of products from a wide range of insurers, Holava has given Bollington Underwriting further quality capacity, backed by our experienced underwriting team.

Significant new Holava products now available include:

All products have proved popular with brokers. You’ve told us that the combination of good quality cover and competitive pricing have provided clients with more options in often tough markets.

This is something we will be further expanding upon in 2020 – watch this space…

BIBA 2019 – and other events

Who knew that BIBA 2019 would be the launchpad to Boris Johnson becoming Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister? We won’t get drawn into politics, but it’s perhaps no coincidence that in a fast-moving world, Johnson chose to make his announcement to some of the most innovative and quick-thinking people in the country – us insurance brokers!

BIBA is always the biggest event in the broking calendar and continues to educate and entertain the whole insurance community. We were really pleased to be back and to see so many familiar – and not so familiar – faces at this exciting event.

Bollington hinted at the launch of Holava at a sports-themed stand, where our friendly and professional team once again worked their socks off – and earned their rest time in-between days at the show!

You might also have seen us at the Compass or Coversure Conferences early in 2019, or at BIBA Scotland. And our new Business Development Manager, Ed Green, has also been busy connecting with brokers across the country.

You don’t have to wait to see us on the road, though. Our Broker Support team is available throughout the year – just get in touch on 01625 348040 and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Don’t forget…

Bollington Underwriting offers a range of products from insurers including AXA, Ageas, RSA, KGM, New India and many more. That’s not forgetting exclusive access to our existing MGA Anjuna Underwriting, and the highly successful Holava product range.

And now to 2020…

Like all good businesses, we never stand still. We’ve listened to your needs and will be launching more products at the turn of the year. Cut out the clutter next year – come straight to Bollington for the best products and service around!

And of course, we’ll be back at the main event for the industry – BIBA 2020 – to be an active part of the broker networking scene in the city of Manchester.

Until then, keep your eyes open for announcements of our new product launches and other events we’ll be appearing at throughout the year.

We look forward to catching up with you all in 2020, and wish you all the very best for Christmas and the New Year.
