For Brokers

Product Recall is not a mandatory insurance purchase for most businesses, so we know it is important to make sure customers understand the benefits of the cover they buy. We are committed to delivering a high-quality service right through from the underwriting of the risk, to the handling of any claims.

Our underwriting edge

We might be a new name in the Product Recall space, but our underwriting quality and sophistication – the result of many years’ on the Product Recall front line – gives us the edge. Allied with a data-led underwriting approach that provides valuable insights into each risk we underwrite, we strive to address every client’s needs and requirements.

Our streamlined process also ensures we get quicker quotes for our brokers and their clients – we aim for a 24-hour turnaround.
