  • About MGAA

    The Managing General Agents' Association is a not-for-profit trade association representing true MGAs. Our aim is to represent and support the UK MGA market.  We work within the professional framework of the Chartered Insurance Institute and our members sign the MGAA Code of ethics.

    Managing General Agents (MGAs) are an important, established and fast-growing sector of the UK insurance industry.

    Over 300 MGAs currently underwrite over 10% of the UK’s £47 billion general insurance market premiums.

    MGAs deserve specific representation to lobby on their behalf, communicate their considerable benefits and drive best practice.

    The Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) was formed in 2011 to fulfil this role.

    The total number of full MGA members now stands at 101, which collectively represent over £3.5bn of underwriting capacity.

Stephen Catlin the founder of Catlin Group Limited and until recently Executive Deputy Chairman of XL Catlin, will be the keynote speaker at the Managing General Agents’ Association’s third annual conference and capacity exchange.

An insurance market veteran of over 40 years, Stephen will address an estimated 500 representatives of managing general agents (MGAs), capacity providers and suppliers at the event. He will share his experience and the insight gained from establishing and growing the market-leading underwriting business that shares his name. Also, highlighting the importance of professionalism in the MGA sector.

The event, exploring the themes of evolution and revolution in the sector, provides those attending with the opportunity to share ideas on how to grow and develop their businesses at a time of significant challenge and change in the sector.

Delegates will also hear from sector and industry experts in two panel debates covering the growth, evolution and sustainability of different MGA models and the opportunities that exist from the Insurtech revolution.

The capacity exchange that runs throughout the conference provides MGAs with the opportunity to meet and discuss business opportunities directly with over 60 capacity providers and service suppliers supporting the sector.
