Our story.

Momentum was established in 2010 by MD Howard Pepper. Frustrated by the lack of support services for independent insurance brokers, Howard looked at other countries’ support models and decided to bring the best aspects of them back to the UK. Opening up the insurance market to forward-thinking brokers who wanted to run their own brokerage was his main driver.

“There is no shortage of entrepreneurial, smart insurance people with the energy, commitment and belief to build their own business. The key is to make the model relevant for where we are now. A modern broker needs to have access to great products, competitive pricing, a first-class trading platform, the ability to e-trade, marketing support, and the freedom to dedicate their time to what they do best and enjoy most – looking after clients and winning new business.”

Investing in the future of independent brokers

Fast forward 10 years and Momentum is run by a group of experienced, entrepreneurial professionals with a wealth of industry knowledge and proven track records in running successful insurance brokerages. Building on our previous success, we’ve made significant investments in our people and systems. This has enabled us to provide the support independent brokerages need to compete with regional and national players.

Momentum has continued to invest in broking expertise and systems. We’ve added other functions such as marketing and back-office support and created a business hub brokers can access throughout their relationship with us. We’re proud to provide the most comprehensive support available in the UK for independent brokers.

“The Momentum model is a great opportunity for us to work on quality business from community brokers, and because everything is handled by the Momentum hub, the process is quick and efficient – it’s the best of both worlds for us. It’s really exciting to work with a partner broker in a different and innovative way.”
Jason Howes, Regional Manager, Allianz

“Momentum is a great trading partner for Ageas. Over the past couple of years, we have developed a close working relationship that has translated into a growing book of profitable business. The Momentum model is incredibly valuable to us, it gives us access to some skilled and experienced brokers around the country that otherwise might not have been on our radar.”
