Momentum is well known for the quality of its broking team and that has never been so important for our partners than now, as we head into a hard market. Our appointed representatives continue to enjoy high growth levels, achieving on average 18% growth compared to the industry average of just 3% and that is in no small part down to our recruitment strategy – hiring and retaining the best broking talent so that our appointed representatives can focus on new business and client service. I extend a warm welcome to all our new joiners.”
