The pandemic has provided some unexpected opportunities for MGAs ready and willing to embrace innovation, digitisation and leverage an appetite for diversification and risk with alternative capital.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has presented its fair share of opportunities, it has also presented the insurance sector with some surprising opportunities—and many managing general agents (MGAs) have used their agility and willingness to innovate to take advantage of these.

That was one of the conclusions of a panel discussion delivered by Intelligent Insurer, in partnership with the Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) and hosted on the Re/insurance Lounge, the publication’s online, on-demand platform for debate and discussion.

In attendance were Philippe Gouraud, chief executive officer, Rising Edge; Michael Keating, chief executive officer, MGAA; Ian Lloyd, chief executive officer, iprism Underwriting; Katherine Snedden, chief risk officer at DUAL Corporate Risks and a member of the advisory board at the British Insurance Brokers Association; Kenneth Underhill, compliance, risk and corporate governance specialist and director of risk and compliance consulting firm Implement Compliance Solutions and Resources (ICSR); and Richard Webb, director, Manchester Underwriting.
