Toronto, April 5, 2021 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that Wynward Insurance Group has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.
Wynward’s sponsorship will support IBAC’s Broker Identity Program (BIP), a national advertising campaign that raises awareness of the significant value that insurance brokers provide for their clients – choice, advice and advocacy.
In addition, their investment will contribute to important IBAC initiatives including IBAC’s technology leadership, professional development of the broker workforce, and our strong and effective federal advocacy to maintain the separation of banking and insurance, which protects consumers and promotes a fair and competitive marketplace.
“We have been proud supporters of the broker channel throughout our 100 years as a company, and 2020 reinforced that Wynward has made the right choice in having brokers as our sole distribution channel,” stated Darryl Levy, President & Chief Executive Officer of Wynward. “The pandemic has created challenges for many businesses, and the advice provided by brokers to commercial policyholders through a very difficult period has been second to none.”
IBAC Chief Executive Officer Peter Braid added: “Wynward’s commitment to distributing their products exclusively through brokers underscores the essential role that brokers play in supporting their clients through good times and bad. We are proud to continue our partnership with Wynward and greatly appreciate their renewed investment.”
