UK-based household insurance provider Plum Underwriting has started writing non-standard and mid-net-worth (MNW) household in the Republic of Ireland, as part of its expansion strategy in the Irish market.
The expansion comes after the company launched its HomeWorks policy in the country at the end of 2013 designed for brokers.
Through this expansion, Irish brokers will now be able to obtain terms for Plum’s three core home insurance products, Amethyst, Flex and HomeWorks.
Plum managing director, David Whitaker, said: "While the standard home insurance market in the Republic of Ireland is well catered for, brokers are struggling to place their specialist and non-standard risks.
"During last year’s HomeWorks roll-out many brokers asked if we could give them access to Flex and Amethyst and we are delighted to have been able to fill this gap so quickly."
