For a big part of our 300+ years, our relationship with brokers has been integral to how we work. It’s a partnership that’s only grown closer and stronger as we’ve embraced the challenges of recent years together. 

Because together, we have a big job to do – we’re working to build a brighter future – and working alongside brokers sits at the heart of this. In a year where business as usual has been turned on its head, we’ve been inspired to see so many brokers not just cope with the challenges of the last year, but thrive, achieving great things in the face of unique circumstances. That’s why we’ve never been prouder to sponsor the British Insurance Awards Insurance Broker of the Year 2021.

We believe true support stretches beyond placing business. Whether you’re looking for help with developing your people, your marketing strategies, your growth ambitions or your succession plans, know that Aviva Broker is always here for you.  

Supporting you, your clients and your community is something we take seriously. And building a brighter future together takes care, commitment and confidence from both of us. It takes you. It takes partnership. It takes Aviva. 

Congratulations to the brokers shortlisted for Insurance Broker of the Year and best of luck to everybody else nominated at this year’s British Insurance Awards. It’s going to be a night to remember.
