Aro Underwriting launches Residential and Commercial Property Owners products on Open GI

We are pleased to announce that Aro Underwriting has today launched a suite of Property Owners products on our commercial lines trading platform, PowerPlace.

“We have ambitious growth plans over the next three years, with preferred distribution through a small number of key partners, Open GI and its commercial lines trading platform – PowerPlace – being one of those.”

James Bright, Managing Director of Aro Underwriting, said:

“Our online Property Owner products (residential landlord, blocks of flats and commercial Property Owners) are an important part of our future development and we are delighted to be partnering with Open GI and its extensive distribution network. The agreement represents an exciting new opportunity for Aro.”

James Bright, Managing Director of Aro Underwriting, said:

“Our goal since the very beginning has been about Open GI giving brokers choice and offering a streamlined, cost-effective way of trading commercial lines business.”

Nick Giddings, CEO of PowerPlace, comments further:

“Brokers should not only have more choice when it comes to offering quality products and covers, but also the way they wish to trade. Open GI’s PowerPlace now offers all of this, and a solution that integrates with a broker’s own strategy. Aro Underwriting is joining us at an exciting time, and strengthens our Property Owners panel even further whilst reinforcing our plans to grow the PowerPlace platform.”
