Bluefin announce MGA is to be called Bluefin Underwriting

Bluefin announce MGA is to be called Bluefin Underwriting

Bluefin has announced that its Managing General Agent (MGA) is to be called Bluefin Underwriting.

Mike Bruce, CEO of Bluefin said: “launching our MGA is one of our key strategic goals and with the appointment of Paul Drake as Head of Underwriting last year, we have been full steam ahead in terms of getting Bluefin Underwriting off the ground. It’s fantastic to be able to talk about what we’ve been up to so far.”

Chief Underwriting Officer Paul Drake explains why the name Bluefin Underwriting was chosen: “We know the norm for brokers going into the MGA space has been to set up separately branded underwriting businesses, mainly to create a feeling of separation between broking and underwriting. However we saw no reason to not use the Bluefin name. We think it has a great pedigree in the market so there is no need for us to hide away from the fact that we are part of the Group. Indeed transparency is an important theme as we want our brokers to know that we have robust processes in place so that the division between underwriting and broking is clear and we have nothing to hide.

“We’ve got some strong foundations in place so that we can focus on creating, distributing, underwriting and managing niche insurance products as well as building the capability to underwrite non standard, ‘mid tier’ commercial business continuing to deepen the breadth and depth of our expertise.”

Over the coming months Bluefin Underwriting will be launching it’s new website and broker trading portal as well as expecting to announce key hires in the coming weeks.
