What is a scheme?

There is no universal definition, but we believe the crucial component shared by every scheme is that it is a bespoke proposition designed for a distinct and scalable customer group.

A scheme differs from off-the-shelf insurance products because it is broker-led and built on key customer insight. Working together, the insurer and broker develop their vision into a bespoke offering.

Schemes are an integral part of the UK insurance market and represent a huge growth opportunity for growth for brokers.
