During the year, the company’s overall gross written premium under management increased by 18.5% to £60.6 million (2021: £51.4 million), driven by strong growth in it’s before-the-event (BTE) legal expenses insurance and assistance business.

“I’m very pleased that we have been able to consolidate the strong position that ARAG had established as we emerged from the pandemic.” comments Managing Director, Tony Buss. “The last couple of years have heightened people’s awareness of the legal risks that they face and the need for legal protection. ARAG was well-placed to satisfy that growing demand.”

“Our great relationships with brokers and MGAs coupled with the reputation we have worked hard to build, over many years, has enabled us to grow accounts with existing partners while winning a significant volume of new business.”
