Optio Group, the specialty MGA, today announces it has rebranded three Ascent Underwriting product lines; Political Risk, Transactional Risk and Medical Billings. Led by Nick Hedley, Alex Smith and Ben Wilson respectively, these will, from today, trade under the Optio Underwriting name.
Kevin Cleary, Group CCO, said:
“This development is an important step as we unify and build the Optio brand and culture. As one of the largest independently-owned specialty MGAs, Optio is committed to continually delivering consistent and seamless service to brokers and clients across all lines and migrating to a single brand, where appropriate, reflects this ambition.”
Optio Underwriting is a trading name of Ascent Underwriting LLP. Transactional and Political Risk currently trades in the European Economic Areas as Optio Europe. Concurrently, Optio’s Medical Billings principal product will be re-launched as MediReg.
