BIBA 2021

Hiscox will be at BIBA 2021 - including a live fringe session from Lee Turner, Jack Bardrick and Leah Church.  If you'd like to catch up with our schemes team or your Branch Manager at BIBA, you can request an appointment here.  


In an increasingly homogenised and competitive insurance market, an effective scheme helps to differentiate your business by targeting niche markets that are not covered or are poorly served by traditional insurance solutions.

A scheme is different from a traditional insurer/broker partnership in that it is broker-led and builds on a key insight into a particular sector. Both the insurer and broker should work in partnership to develop a bespoke offering.

This video (external link) is only a minute long and helps explain how we look to help you unlock your scheme potential.
