Still, today, over 70% of our shares are owned by brokers and many of our shareholders are the same professional independent firms which place business through us. Their support and commitment has been a key feature in our growth; because of them, and the many hundreds of brokers who support us, Broker Direct now trades over £130m premium in personal and commercial lines products.
We use our strength and position in the market to secure attractive products, rates and commissions for our brokers, backed by leading edge technology which brings savings in time and costs through efficient online trading.
Broker Direct now employs hundreds of staff; we have two locations in Bolton. As we have grown we have also added more companies and services to the Broker Direct Group, so we can support our brokers in many areas of their business.
