Toronto, March 5, 2018 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.
Launched in 1988, the mission of the Broker Identity Program is to raise awareness of the insurance broker distribution network and promote the value and professionalism of brokers to consumers, insurers and governments. The program’s centrepiece is the magenta BIPPER logo, a widely recognized symbol representing the choice, advice, and advocacy that brokers bring to their clients.
“The “Tri” in the name Trisura represents to us the three party relationship between our brokers, their customers and ourselves. We are a broker company because we believe independent brokers are of vital importance to the insurance process and in representing the needs and best interests of insureds. IBAC plays a critical role in supporting insurance brokers across Canada and we at Trisura are pleased to continue our involvement with the Broker Identity Program.” said Mike George, Trisura’s President & CEO.
IBAC Chief Executive Officer Peter Braid added: “Trisura understands the benefits of branding in promoting the value of insurance brokers. Their renewed investment demonstrates a strong commitment to providing excellent customer service through the broker channel, and we greatly appreciate their continued support.”
