Aviva schemes

A partnership built on shared ambition

A scheme provides a tailored and specialist insurance solution for customers, supported by Aviva with underwriting and administration through delegated authority.

Lots of factors can go into running a successful scheme, but what matters most is the relationship between you and your insurer. We believe a scheme is a trusted long-term partnership which builds on the complementary skill sets each party can bring to the table.

No one understands the needs of your client better than you. This simple fact can be key to establishing a supportive, collaborative environment, which lets you and your insurer work together to develop, deliver and optimise a scheme throughout its lifecycle.

So, if you’re starting a new scheme or looking for a new partner to bring fresh life into your existing scheme, we’d love to hear from you.
