There’s no such thing as a ‘typical broker’.
Sometimes it is difficult to avoid stereotypes, most people probably have an image of an insurance broker as being rather old-fashioned, tied to a desk, surrounded by paperwork, and occasionally venturing out to see their clients.
Let’s be honest there are still plenty like that, but we are delighted to have supported a modern breed of Insurance brokers who are breaking the mould.
We believe that the Appointed Representative (AR) model is the future of insurance broking for the independent broker and it’s helping to revolutionise the image of our sector. Partnering with over 85 companies, Momentum works together with each to align with their business model, goals, and aspirations. By taking away many of the traditional elements of the broker they are freed to provide a modern, dynamic, client-facing service valued by their clients and a much more rewarding career for them.
By handing over many of the traditional burdens; compliance and regulation, market, and systems management etc they can focus on more satisfying activities, building a business and looking after clients. Our partners have access to a qualified and experienced team to access more than 250 markets on their behalf. This enables them to provide their clients with a personal approach and great propositions.
Every job sector experiences busy periods, and this career path is no different, however, the model allows you to be more flexible when it comes to providing top-class client service and spending quality time with your family.

Speaking to us whilst drinking coffee next to the ski slopes in the Czech Republic, Jason said:
“The great thing about being an AR is having a flexible work-life balance so that I can appreciate the outdoor life that we love as a family.
My wife is Czech and most of our holidays are spent in the countryside near the Jeseniky mountains where it has plenty of cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, cycling, canoeing, and wild swimming.”

“My time as an Appointed Representative has been very enjoyable. The best part is dealing with my lovely clients, winning new cases, solving problems, and most of all, being there for people. However, I love the fact that my job now fits in perfectly in my life, so I can take on all these different roles and have fun doing them all!”
