Direct Insurance London Market Announce Business Expansion

Specialist schemes and Lloyd’s broker Direct Insurance London Market (DILM), has moved to a new location in the heart of the City of London.

Striving to exceed expectations

DILM founder David Bearman says the company’s staff will benefit from a larger space not only due to DILM’s growing business but also because it is important to provide the right physical environment. “We are constantly striving to exceed the expectations of our clients, and based on what our clients are telling us, we have been able to do just that. To continue to lead the way in our business in terms of creativity and innovation, we require a work-space that will allow our people to collaborate most effectively.”

Where you’ll find us

The new offices are located even closer to the internationally-renowned Lloyd’s building. You will now find the DILM team on the 6th floor of 34 Lime Street with space for over 100 staff. It was in this building where DILM started its journey just six years ago with a small rented office space housing just 4 staff.

DILM has a history of attracting and retaining top talent in the insurance industry and is now considered to be one of the leading Lloyd’s brokers in the UK. The company, which recently hit the £150m GWP milestone in 2018, is in the process of recruiting additional talent to meet growing market demand. There is room to accommodate that growth within the new sixth-floor office space.

An outstanding year

After an outstanding year, DILM is poised to grow even more during 2019. Recent announcements group-wide include global appointments in the U.S.A via Rokstone Underwriting, the international specialty lines MGA, and the launch of a Commercial Combined scheme. The continued growth of the business is set to meet the demands and needs of brokers across the UK and Ireland.

Lloyd’s tour

The team at DILM, offer brokers the opportunity to visit the internationally renowned Lloyd’s building to provide an introduction to Lloyd’s and how the Lloyd’s market works.

Covéa partners with iFarm Underwriting on mini-fleet product

The new offering is available to brokers specialising in rural businesses and agriculture.

Covéa Insurance and iFarm Underwriting have entered a strategic partnership for motor fleets targeting rural businesses.

iFarm, which is part of specialist managing general agent (MGA) Imperium Insurance Management, stated that the arrangement will give its agricultural brokers a “competitive edge” in the smaller fleet space of between two and 15 vehicles.

Alun Roberts, managing director of iFarm, noted that it was the MGA’s mission to create a purpose built quote, buy and bind intuitive platform with a suite of agricultural products focused around country life.

He added: “The lifeblood of the product is to avoid urban areas by selecting country postcodes and targeting rural family run businesses, giving consideration to occupations such as builders, electricians and the like.”

Gavin Dollings, director of commercial underwriting at Covéa, stated: “iFarm has established a market reputation for exceptional service delivery and a customer-centric culture, which dovetails our own strategic goals.”

According to the MGA iFarm and sister brand iSure Underwriting have launched a number of products in recent months in the UK and Irish markets.

Combined with our global knowledge and experience, the Miami expansion is the perfect hub to enable further growth with both existing and new clients; opening up many new potential opportunities for the future.”

Fernando joined ConsiliumRe in 2017, bringing with him an impressive set of credentials to underpin the Miami opening; with over 25 years’ experience in the Reinsurance market. Commenting on his new role Fernando says: ‘Miami, is the principal access point for Latin American business. We intend to produce business in all classes of insurance where there is Latin American appetite; using our proximity to the territory and the contacts and knowledge we have in the region.”
