BIBA welcomes Sompo International as a partner 

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) is pleased to welcome Sompo International as a partner.

Sompo International is a global commercial property and casualty insurance and reinsurance organisation with over 9,000 employees and operations in North America, the UK, Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. Sompo International is a part of the Sompo Group, one of the leading Property and Casualty Insurance organisations in the world.

Graeme Trudgill, BIBA CEO said: “It is very encouraging to welcome Sompo into membership given their stature as a global insurer with a strong desire to grow in the UK insurance market with a focus on the regions. Insurer choice for many BIBA brokers has become more restricted in recent years so the new proposition that Sompo offers is important and timely.’

Bob Thaker, Sompo International’s CEO, Commercial P&C Insurance UK said, “We are delighted to be partnering with BIBA.  This collaboration represents our commitment to delivering greater value to our broker partners as we grow Sompo International’s footprint across the UK, leveraging BIBA’s expertise to drive innovation and success.”
