A team from leading independent specialty MGA Nexus Underwriting Management Limited recently completed the Nexus Three Peak Challenge which involved climbing the highest mountains in three different countries in the United Kingdom over a 24 hour period: Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.
The Nexus team of 22 walkers set out to conquer the Three Peaks and to reach a target of £10,000 for their chosen charity Starlight Children’s Foundation. To date, the total money raised is now well in excess of £18,000.
This weekend is The Nexus 3 Peak 24 hour Challenge and we are asking all of our friends to support us.
Twenty two of us from Nexus will attempt the challenge. It involves climbing the highest mountains in the GB’s 3 countries in a 24 hour period – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, Snowdon. It is 23.5 miles and 13 hours of walking, 2,764m of ascending/descending and 11 hours of driving! It is a tough challenge for the team!!
An article appeared on the Insurance Insider website on Tuesday 16th August 2016 which referenced Nexus and one of our Underwriting Partners, PartnerRe. It contained a number of inaccuracies (which have since been corrected in the online article) but in case you read the earlier version, please note the following:
PartnerRe has not ceased writing new business – it is not in “run-off” as the title of the article states. PartnerRe Wholesale is no longer trading as a separate division and is therefore not signing any new agreements with MGAs, but PartnerRe continues to trade and write business through the agreements it already has in place, including Nexus which represents some 75% of PartnerRe Wholesale’s GWP.Read the full article
