Airmic has confirmed that Aviva will become a full Airmic Partner in 2018.
"We are thrilled," commented chief executive John Ludlow. "Their rapidly expanding offering in the corporate solutions space makes them the perfect candidate for full partnership and I am very much looking forward to working even more closely with them in the coming months," he said.
"We have been particularly impressed with their innovative approach to insurance purchase, especially on the strides they have made on integrating employee benefits with general insurance programmes," Mr Ludlow added. "It's an excellent example of how insurance purchase can result in greater collaboration and efficiency across a business, and we feel our members will benefit greatly from their expertise."
Aviva is "delighted" to continue its long-standing relationship with Airmic, according to Ross Harrington, the London market & client director in Aviva's Global Corporate and Specialty Risk division.
"We will continue to work closely with Airmic to bring together our joint strategies with our approach to the integration of insurance into the client's wider business agenda to include general insurance, health and wider employee benefits," he added.
