ebroking 2012: E-trading cannot replace broker service


Ben Thornton, director, strategy and operations, NIG, stated: “There is a fear that the broker-insurer relationship could suffer. Differentiation is key and that comes through keeping relationships going.”

Christan Freer, senior insurer relationship manager and head of product placement, Brightside Group, added: “You have to be pragmatic; face-to-face is vital for up-selling and cross-selling.

"We have not got a strong brand name so we have to make sure we have good face-to-face relationships.”
