Today’s guest is someone highly thought of in the London Market whose skills are in high demand.
Three years ago he set out to start his own business and reshape the MGA model in a highly radical way that seeks to align the agent as closely to the carriers backing them as possible.
Many businesses say they are going to break the mould but what Talbir Bains is trying to achieve at Volante has never been done before.
He and I had been introduced and briefly shaken hands a couple of times over the years, but I had never interviewed him in depth.
I am very glad that I did.
Talbir is as smart and visionary as you would expect, but I had no idea of the depth of his conviction, the scale of his ambition and the radical nature of the new type of MGA he is bringing to market.
Listen on if you want to learn what the MGA of the future is going to look like.
