NatWest has launched a new van insurance partnership with insurance broking group, Brightside. This appears to follow on from Brightside's earlier success in winning the tender for Direct Line Group's (DLG) van insurance business earlier in 2014.
This led to a van insurance partnership with Churchill being launched in March 2014. It is worth noting that whereas the Churchill deal is underwritten by UK Insurance and administered by Brightside, the NatWest partnership uses the extended Brightside panel.
It is understood that the NatWest product will be marketed through a number of channels, including in-branch and ultimately on the aggregators.
