MyIBA’s An Evening With Royal LondonBACK TO BLOG
20th Dec 2016
On 1 December 2016 to kick-start the festive season, as part of MyIBA’s ‘An evening with’ programme, Royal London hosted an exclusive IBA broker event to thank you for your support throughout the year. IBA directors, MyIBA Committee members and IBA brokers were in attendance, as well as Royal London’s senior management and staff representing departments like Underwriting and Sales Support. Guests were welcomed to Royal London’s office in Stephen’s Green for a canapé reception followed by drinks. It was not only a chance to network but also an opportunity to look around Royal London’s office which was newly refurbished during the year, demonstrating the firm’s long term commitment to the Irish market.
To open the evening Greg Dyer, Royal London’s Head of Operations provided a brief overview of Royal London’s current financial size and strength, recent claims payment statistics and commitment to Ireland. Speaking about Royal London’s strong performance in 2016, which saw market share at record levels in Ireland, reaching over 16%, Greg expressed that this has been in no small part thanks to the support received from the IBA and its broker members.
Royal London has been continuously investing in its business, looking to deliver proposition and service innovations that really matter to brokers and their clients, just one example of this is the Whole of Life product which comes with a highly innovative Life Changes Option. Royal London is committed to continuously improving the service they provide, like its new case manager model whose primary purpose is to provide excellent service. To help support brokers to grow their business Royal London has only recently launched a new online portal which includes new online resources like personalised flyers to drive sales and a range of calculators on life cover duration, indexation and commission.
Greg thanked the IBA for the support Royal London receives from their members, and reminded brokers who have yet to vote in the IBA’s broker service survey to consider Royal London. This was followed by words from Ciaran Phelan, IBA’s CEO who spoke highly of the Royal London’s products, innovation and the support services for their members before thanking Royal London for hosting the evening.
