The LV broker division has further expanded its regional network with the opening of a new office in Birmingham. The office is based in Baskerville House in the heart of the city and will manage broker relationships in both the East and West Midlands. Mark Hands has been appointed branch manager for the office.
One of the largest insurance markets with most leading insurers either having offices or a presence in England’s second city. The move is designed to provide a better service to insurance brokers in and around the midlands. The Broker division offers LV car insurance and fleet insurance to the public in addition to commercial products for businesses, shop owners, property owners and surgeries.
Following the rise of direct and online insurers insurance brokers have been slowly squeezed out, however, the news that LV is widening its operation will no doubt give hope this sector of the insurance market. In a statement, the insurer said it plans to continue to develop its network to ensure brokers have easy access to local decision makers.
Phil Bunker, managing director of LV broker said: “We are delighted to be adding an eighth branch to our network. We are fully committed to a nationwide network as we believe this enables us to provide the best possible service to brokers”.
