2017 Underwriting Service Awards

NMU wins prestigious award for fourth year running – and wins two more categories as well!

Every year, the Underwriting Services Awards celebrate the best of the best – both individuals and teams – in the insurance underwriting industry, as judged by their peers from that toughest and most demanding of all sectors, the broker market.

For the last three years in succession, NMU has scooped the highly prestigious Transport/Freight (including Marine & Cargo) Team of the Year award, beating off some heavy-hitting rivals in a keenly fought competition – and at the 2017 Awards on the 16thNovember 2017, at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, NMU carried off the Transport/Freight (including Marine & Cargo) Team of the Year prize for an amazing fourth year.

“We’re absolutely delighted to make it four in a row, and thrilled to have been so richly acknowledged in this way,” says Paul Hiscoe, NMU Executive Director. “It confirms our commitment to providing a market-leading service at local level through our comprehensive and innovative branch network.”

The Awards are courtesy of Insurance Post, the most well-established, most credible and most continuous source of market-leading intelligence for the general insurance market – and the journal’s now celebrated annual survey invites brokers to honestly and unflinchingly highlight their underwriting teams’ successes – as well as pointing out their failings. In addition to giving valuable insights into the quality of service that brokers are getting from their insurers, the survey also forms the basis for the Awards’ shortlist, from which NMU have enjoyed continuous success year after year.

But at this year’s awards, NMU went two better by claiming several more top prizes: Construction & Engineering Team of the Year and Overall Underwriting Team of the Year, making it a triple whammy for award-winning categories. “This is a real triumph for our team,” comments NMU Executive Director, Nick Limb. “They have put in some exceptionally hard work in growing our market share and enhancing our customer service across the board, and this recognition is a wonderful reward for all their commitment and dedication.”

“We’re very proud of the individuals and teams who have pulled off this fantastic triple win at the 2017 awards – and to win Overall Underwriting Team of the Year is just brilliant and a testament to all at NMU” adds NMU Executive Director, Duncan McClean. “I’d also like to thank all the brokers who have voted for us and have made us so proud to be serving their needs in the best way we know how.”
