General insurance provider, Berkeley Alexander, has once again recorded record growth. Results at the end of April reveal a 56 per cent year-on-year growth in new business and a staggering 104 per cent increase in online sales.
Speaking about the results, Geoff Hall, Managing Director at Berkeley Alexander commented: “2015 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for us as a result of the hard work put in by the team over the last twelve months. We have made a significant investment in our online quote and buy system, adding more functionality and choice (including options for both full quote and quick indication) to allow our advisors and distribution partners to do more business with us online. As a result we have more than doubled our online sales, and have doubled our web server capacity to handle the extra traffic.
“In addition, our investment in expanding our BDM team has played a large part in our success. Our new team of BDMs are visible in the market, speaking with our agents and IFAs, whether they be large producers or small, to ensure we deliver the very best service and support possible.”
The result has been increasing support from existing insurers, the addition of several new insurers to the panel and expansion into new lines.
Geoff explains: “We have a truly unique proposition which is proving very popular in the market. Our mix of delivering streamlined online sales backed up with a personal service is keeping us one step ahead of the competition and the market. We are tapping into new markets, such as our recent expansion into High Net Worth, attracting new insurers to our panel such as AXA, Hiscox, Chubb and Aviva, and growing both our distribution and customer base. As always, we will not stop there and will invest further across all areas of our business to ensure we continue to be the adviser’s general insurance provider of choice.”
