LV= Broker becomes Jelf strategic partner

Press release: 30/10/2014

The 2014 Brokers' Insurer of the Year, LV=, has become a strategic partner of the Broker of the Year, Jelf Insurance Brokers.

Whilst LV= has had a strong relationship with Jelf for years, this new deal will cement the partnership and is expected to generate additional premium for LV= in the next three years.

As a strategic partner, all of LV='s commercial products will now be available through the Jelf panel, including retail, property investor and wholesalers insurance. In addition, some of LV='s personal lines products, such as van and motorcycle insurance, will also be available via the panel.

During 2014 we have had an increasing amount of involvement with LV= and it is clear that it has now broadened both its product range and underwriting appetite. This fits well with the placement strategy of Jelf in terms of suitability for our clients ranging from the SME sector, to that of our mid corporate clients. We are delighted that we will be working in partnership with LV= over the coming years to develop the account.

Phil Barton, Chief Executive of Jelf Insurance

Phil Barton and his insurance team are running a great business at Jelf and we are pleased to become one of their strategic partners. This is an important milestone for us and will allow us to grow both our commercial and personal lines books. We share a similar trading philosophy with Jelf so I'm sure that this will be a successful partnership for both companies.

Phil Bunker, Managing Director of LV= Broker
