Aviva confirms 5 year deal with Prestige Underwriting Services


Deal adds motor insurance underwriting to existing home partnership

Aviva and Prestige Underwriting Services have agreed a new five-year distribution deal covering non-standard motor and van insurance for personal lines customers.

The latest deal will see Aviva underwrite cover for non-standard motor and van risks throughout the UK and will be distributed through Prestige Underwriting’s network of 600 brokers and affinity partners. The agreement runs until 2026 and builds on an existing relationship where Aviva underwrites motor and non-standard home policies for Prestige.

David Skinn, Aviva Distribution Director, said: “We are delighted to extend our relationship with Prestige Underwriting on the back of our already successful partnership for motor and non-standard home cover. This is a great opportunity to further expand our underwriting footprint in the non-standard motor market and continue to drive growth through our personal lines business.”

Alison Williams, Managing Director at Prestige Underwriting, added, “Prestige Underwriting has a strong and established relationship with Aviva in the Northern Ireland Motor market and we are currently in the second year of our non-standard Home insurance partnership for UK Brokers. We are absolutely delighted to build on the successes we have achieved together to date and to expand our trading footprint in non-standard motor and van risks in partnership with Aviva. As a business we are excited to re-enter the non-standard motor market with our continually evolving product portfolio. We are fully committed to growing our business by continuing to deliver niche solutions to our valued network of Brokers and partners as we embark on our extended and expanded partnership with Aviva, the UK’s leading insurer.”
