Prestige Underwriting Partner Expansion Deal

March 2021

The Prestige Underwriting GB team is delighted to announce significant expansion of our existing relationship with the Markerstudy Group’s Retail division following our selection as the non-standard Home partner to support the AISL / Co-op Insurance Household proposition.

Working closely and in partnership with Markerstudy and AISL, we have now launched our non-standard product, Coverall, to the AISL team based in Manchester, with a clear focus on providing an efficient solution for the non-standard and more technical risk circumstances that the extensive Co-op Insurance customer base may present. Our established and reputable appetite for non-standard business will serve to complement Co-op Insurance customers.

Tim Baxter, Head of Broker Development, Prestige Underwriting GB, said: “I am delighted that we have been selected as non-standard partner by Markerstudy, AISL and Co-op Insurance. We enjoy a long established trading partnership with the Markerstudy Retail teams and it is a pleasure to build on this with the opportunity to provide reassurance around the placement of risks that step outside of a more standard footprint.

Ross Barrington, Managing Director of the Retail Division of Markerstudy Group and Affinity Insurance Solutions Ltd, adds: “We have an excellent relationship with Prestige Underwriting GB and I am pleased to widen our product footprint at such a pivotal time. They are a trusted partner and this arrangement will enable us to offer a greater choice of home protection to Co-op policyholders.”
