Becoming a Successful Appointed Representative

Our commitment to our Appointed Representatives is one that is focused on their success.

We understand that talented insurance account executives feel that managing FCA compliance, trying to establish insurance agencies and creating their own IT and administration systems is too much to take on, operationally and financially, when starting their own insurance brokerage.

The dynamic and truly entrepreneurial broker should recognise that time spent on all of the above is time wasted – hours that could be spent building the sales pipeline and converting new business. Everything Gauntlet offers is geared towards making that happen.

We are a realistic AR network. We know that true success as an AR only comes through a huge amount of commitment, hard work, stepping outside of comfort zones at times and listening to advice. For this reason, we are selective about who we take on as an Appointed Representative, because we want to work with high quality, reputable individuals who have every chance of success using our Appointed Representative model, but who also have a hunger to achieve top-flight earnings.

This selection criteria serves every Gauntlet AR’s interests, as we have quality running through our network. Once on board, we maintain the standards continually and will not allow any individuals to hold back or tarnish others.

Unparalleled access to market and risk placement

The benefits are listed here but you will, above all, get impressive access to the insurers and the quotes that can help you convert top-level and large-scale enquiries, as well as smaller and medium-sized ones, as you build your insurance book of business.
