Statement Start

Brokers Ireland welcomes the clarification issued by the CCPC regarding its intention to carry out a market study in the public liability insurance market and confirmation that it is not investigating any breach of competition law.

Brokers Ireland is confident that the CCPC market study will highlight the positive role of Insurance Brokers in the public liability insurance sector.

Brokers generate competition and choice in all lines of insurance and financial services.

The personal injuries claims environment has created a significant challenge for individuals and businesses seeking public liability insurance. Brokers Ireland reiterates that those who take advice from an Insurance Broker when seeking insurance receive impartial, expert advice on the best cover available in the market, and will experience a better outcome if a claim is made than those who purchase insurance direct from an insurer or from a tied agent.

Brokers Ireland looks forward to addressing any queries raised by the CCPC in the course of its market study in the public liability insurance market.
