A note to you all from Karen Jackman

As August is now upon us, I hope you, like me, have either managed to take some time out to recharge the batteries or have some time booked off over the next few weeks to spend with your families. Whilst so much has changed over the course of this year, the one thing that hasn’t changed is the strength of our relationship and commitment to you. Although it’s been a tough first half of the year, we’ve ridden the storm together.

Last week we announced our H1 results and it’s fair to say these reflect the challenges we’ve faced, with both the weather events at the beginning of the year and Covid-19 seeing some of our key metrics impacted. We are however seeing strong signs of recovery within the market, so thank you for your continued support.

Continuing on the theme of support, hopefully by now you’ll be familiar with our Back to Business campaign. This has been our way of supporting you and your clients in getting back to business safely and helping you and your teams respond to the changing dynamics of the market.

Our campaign has focussed on the areas you told us were important to you - from topical risk management guidance and loss prevention standards to support from HR and the wellbeing of your workplace. More recently we’ve provided guidance on the hardening market and how to manage some of the risks to your own business, all of which were bought to you through our series of business webinars and podcasts. If you didn’t get the opportunity to attend or listen, you can find these and more on our new Back to Business hub on Aviva Broker.

Looking forward, we’ll continue to focus on delivering what’s important to you so please feel free to drop me a line with your thoughts and suggestions on future topics or any other feedback you may have. 

Stay safe,
