Zurich in North America on Monday announced its new relationship with wholesale broker AmWINS Group Benefits (AmWINS). This is the second relationship Zurich, a leading provider of commercial property and casualty insurance globally and in North America, has formalized to further its ambitious growth plan in the program accident and health (A&H) space.
"The strong relationships AmWINS has established in the affinity market make them one of the largest and most diversified wholesale insurance distributors in the country," said Craig Fundum, head of Programs & Direct Markets for Zurich North America Commercial. "Zurich wants to work with more top-tier program administrators, and this new relationship with AmWINS gives us access to agents and brokers that are some of the strongest in the nation."
“Working with Zurich is key to diversifying our portfolio," commented Sam Fleet, AmWINS Group Benefits’ President. "Zurich is helping us achieve our mission of delivering a competitive edge to our employees, clients, and markets.”
Zurich has previously written A&H insurance through corporate markets and other non-program approaches but recently launched the Mass Consumer Markets group to focus on affinity business to its programs area.
