Independent MGA with specialist underwriters that consistently deliver competitive insurance solutions for a broad range of commercial risks.
EXPERTS WITH AUTHORITY
Founded in April 2011, Century is a specialist commercial underwriting agency known for our underwriting expertise, deep knowledge of industry requirements, a straight-forward style of underwriting and a talented team of approachable and down-to-earth underwriters.
A specialist commercial insurer through and through. We have become well known for our motor fleet insurance and complementary commercial insurance lines, including Liability, Contract Works, Property Owners and Professional Risks cover.
We are 100% management owned and focused on client service supported by sustainable growth. Being management owned has allowed us to foster an approach to underwriting that is widely claimed but often not delivered – as we genuinely work exceptionally closely with our broker partners to deliver a service that feels like a true extension of their own teams, working collectively to support the needs of their customers.
Known for our flexible underwriting and ‘can do’ attitude, our appetite and approach to considering risks ensures we are always looking at ways to underwrite risk, not decline it.
Adding Value With A Human Touch
Century is an underwriting agency led by underwriters. Ingrained in our culture, therefore, is a deep set desire to add value to an otherwise automated and commoditised industry, by offering an underwriter led approach to considering risks and a human touch to the insurance products we offer.
Combined, this means that you will always speak directly with a decision maker when discussing your customer’s needs, and you can rest assured that the policy we underwrite has been carefully tailored by an underwriter that genuinely cares about your customers best interests – not the unexplained whim of a computer algorithm.
“We have been consistently impressed by Ian and the entire Century team. Quite simply, their speed of documentation is second to none and response times to quotes, requests and any customer enquiry are equally as impressive. Combine this with their A Rated Capacity, talented underwriters and competitive pricing, we can foresee using Century for our customers risks for a long time to come.”
Paul Bloor, IFS Risk Solutions Ltd
Delegated Authority & Capacity Partners
Boasting a portfolio of only A Rated markets, Century have multiple in-house delegated authority and insurance partners which allows us to ensure the correct market is always used for our brokers and their clients.
Each of our partners are leveraged for their expertise in specialist areas to ensure we consistently deliver competitive, comprehensive and exclusive policies that perfectly match the requirement.
We also have the ability to write our risks per capita or wage/turnover to ensure we are competitive on all types of risks. If Century are unable to write on our delegated authority binder, we will select the right Underwriter to work with you, on securing the best terms and coverage.
As we focus on constantly investing and developing our panel of insurance partners, this ensures we have access to the best possible market to suit your client’s needs. And as all markets are A Rated, you can rest assured that with Century, your client will always be based with a Financially secure Insurance Company.
We work directly with brokers across the UK, supporting the needs of their customers and helping transform their experience of insurance, with our own personal touch.
With over 300 agencies under a TOBA with Century, brokers can easily access our extensive range of products and enjoy the benefits of working closely with our talented underwriters to deliver solutions to their customers which ensure they win and retain the business.
