  • 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.
