Please join us for what will be a lively and engaging webinar on the key findings of the MGA report on Wednesday 21st October 2020 from 08:30am.

Roundtable Attendees: Michael Keating (Managing Director, Managing General Agents' Association), Charles Manchester (Chairman Managing General Agents' Association & CEO of Manchester Underwriting), William Morris (Director of Underwriting Delegated Authority UK at HDI Global Specialty SE), Richard Clapham (CEO of Dual UK) and Graeme Walker (Agency Manager for the UK Great Lakes)

The webinar will be chaired by Clyde & Co partner, Jennette Newman, and joining her from Clyde & Co will be Michael Payton, Simon Konsta and William Hogarth.

Some discussion areas will be:

  • MGAs have shown, in the last few months, great operational resilience. Which areas have particularly shown resilience?

  • The report highlights that MGAs need to be nimble over the coming months. Why is this vitally important for the MGA market?

  • The importance of claims handling has reduced compared to last year's report. Is this caused by the economic environment or is it a genuine reduction?

  • A high proportion of carriers & MGA’s believe electronic placement and standardisation of data will accelerate as a result of COVID. What will this actually look like in practice?

  • MGAs have some new challenges and old challenges – what do MGA's need to do to ensure their foundations for the future are solid?
