Real estate MGA Ventis launches

Ventis, a London-based MGA focused on commercial and residential real estate, is officially open for business.

Led by Gareth Roberts, previously head of Covéa’s Mid-Market Specialist and Network division, Ventis will target medium-sized property risks. The MGA will underwrite UK risks with a comprehensive suite of cover extensions, including Buildings, Loss of Rent, Employers’ Liability, Property Owners’ Liability, Terrorism, and optional Legal Expenses.

The company is launching with the support of Mission Underwriters, with long-term capacity through Accelerant Insurance Europe.

“I believe there is a huge opportunity in the market for a real estate MGA that is willing to invest in broker relationships and can provide real and flexible underwriting service to the same high standards as the major players. Our business model is built on giving brokers easy access to underwriters and rapid service delivery so that we can build partnerships that will last for the long term.” – Gareth Roberts, CEO, Ventis.
