AR network launches new phase


An insurer-backed authorised representative network has boosted its market presence, launching a new insurance brokerage.

Resilium, which is part of Suncorp, yesterday launched Resilium Insurance Broking (RIB), a licensed insurance broker and Steadfast member.

Austbrokers Partner Developments General Manager Greg Arms has been recruited to head up the new venture as Managing Director.

Resilium Managing Director Gerard McDermott says Resilium wants to establish itself as the country’s leading AR network.

“This new distribution business will significantly enhance the value proposition of advisers – providing ‘one-stop-shop’ access to comprehensive general insurance and enabling them to provide a quality holistic service to their customers and tailor solutions to meet their needs,” he says.

“Resilium advisers are a critical part of our current and future distribution strategy and advisers who join the RIB business will have the opportunity to enhance their customer offering.”
