McClarrons win Broker Innovation of the Year Award

We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded the Broker Innovation of the Year Award at the very first Broker Network Awards.

On Friday 7th October 2016, McClarrons were announced as winners of the Broker Innovation of the Year Award for our design and development of Rural Protect – an insurance policy specifically designed to protect the interests of rural businesses.

Having identified a significant gap in the market, McClarrons decided to build its own product supported by global insurer AXA and legal firm rradar. Rural Protect provides a specialist type of management liability insurance tailored to the unique requirements of the rural sector.

With many rural businesses facing increased employment legislation along with increased regulations and potential fines from the HSE, we found that there was a significant gap in the insurance market that needed to be filled. In addition, Rural Protect not only offers cover for Directors and Officers of limited companies but also of partnerships and sole traders.

Steven Swift, Development Manager at McClarrons, commented on the news: “We are very proud to have been awarded the Broker Innovation of the Year Award. A lot of time and thought went into developing Rural Protect to ensure it provides rural businesses with the full extent of cover they require. We have had a great response from the rural community and it is extremely rewarding to have also received such prestigious industry recognition”.

We could not be more proud to have been presented with this award and to have received recognition for our truly unique product.
