The group stated that every firm which holds the Chartered status adheres to an ethical code that underpins broader commitments to professional values which the MGA is “proud to maintain”. It will now be awarded the title, Chartered Insurance Underwriting Agent.
Ross Lazaroo-Hood, group chief executive of Landmark, said: “We are thrilled that we have achieved the Chartered status for Landmark Underwriting in London, we have always been committed to an internal and external customer-first approach in which our teams will continue to pledge the Chartered ethos.
“A huge thank you to all the Landmark family and our brokers who have helped us achieve this status.”
Peter Staddon, group non-executive chairman of Landmark, added: “The MGA sector is an important one that now has the Chartered Status setting a benchmark for Landmark and other MGA’s to show a professional commitment to a code of ethics both towards its staff and the MGA sector generally.
“The skills required in underwriting are important and having people who are committed to continuing their professional development is incredibly important which the Landmark team does well.”
