It’s been two weeks now since we announced our exciting news that RSA, part of the Intact Group, has reached an agreement with Direct Line Group to acquire NIG. I would like to reemphasise what a significant opportunity it represents for our business and you as our broker partners. It allows us to build on the incredible success we have had over the last few years and continue to develop and grow our presence in the market.
I have been truly humbled by all the positive reactions we received not only about what a great fit the two businesses make, but also the tremendous support NIG has from our trading partners. The complimentary benefits and ambitions were clear throughout each discussion, and I am delighted that our two businesses combined will have such a broad range of client solutions, including our Motor Trade and Commercial Vehicle propositions, which will remain very much within our core product offering.
Our broker relationships and clients are and will continue to be at the heart of everything we do, with our service and our people remaining fundamental to that. It really is business as usual, and we will work together to provide the highest levels of service whilst continuing to optimise trading opportunities. Our appetite to grow and innovate is stronger than ever.
We will keep you updated as the transition progresses and as always, your existing NIG contacts are there to help and continue trading as usual.
Acting Commercial MD, Direct Line Group
