11th October 2016: Jackson Lee Underwriting has announced the launch of its new Leisure Division.
Products offered initially include travel, touring caravan, static caravan and park homes insurance. All products will be available to brokers via Jackson Lee Underwriting’s secure online platform, ABEL. The launch will give brokers continuity with fast access to a suite of leisure and other complementary motor products all in one place. It will put the Underwriting Agency in direct competition with some major players in the leisure market.
The Underwriting Agency has successfully recruited Graeme Hamilton, a recognised underwriting expert in the leisure sector, to head up its new division. Graeme has over 20 years’ experience in the leisure sector, joining most latterly from Thistle Insurance where he was Business Development Director. Prior to that he was Retail Development Manager for K.Drewe Insurance Brokers and spent 10 years at JLT . He also ran his own successful specialist Leisure broker for four years before he sold it to Canopius Group in 2012. Graeme will be based at the Jackson lee Underwriting office in Warwickshire.
Nick Mohan, joint Managing Director at Jackson Lee Underwriting, comments: “We are excited and thrilled to launch our Leisure Division. With some of the best A rated capacity behind us, and one of the best Leisure underwriters in the market to head up the team, we are confident that this will be a significant boon for Jackson Lee. Brokers will be able to sell clients travel, caravan and other leisure products alongside the services we currently provide such as motor excess and GAP; so we are offering brokers continuity of product and service as well as speed, all seamlessly available through our secure online platform, ABEL.”
Jackson Lee will be showcasing its first two Leisure products, Travel and Touring Caravan insurance, at the Broker Expo in Coventry on 10th November. It plans to add further products to the Leisure Division over the coming months covering leisure pursuits such as fishing, cycling and photography.
Jackson Lee Underwriting is an MGA celebrating 25 years in business this year with offices in London, Devon and Warwickshire. It has been the BIBA approved GAP scheme provider since 2012 and specialises in bringing a broad range of innovative niche insurance products to the broker market.
