Toronto, May 20, 2020 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that HSB BI&I, part of Munich Re, has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.

HSB BI&I’s sponsorship will support IBAC’s Broker Identity Program (BIP), a national advertising campaign that raises awareness of the significant value that insurance brokers provide for their clients – choice, advice and advocacy.

In addition, their investment will contribute to important IBAC initiatives including IBAC’s technology leadership, professional development of the broker workforce, and our strong and effective federal advocacy to maintain the separation of banking and insurance, which protects consumers and promotes a fair and competitive marketplace.

“The strength of our industry relies on a robust broker distribution network, especially during times of uncertainty and change. HSB BI&I is pleased to continue supporting IBAC’s advocacy on behalf of brokers and insurance customers,” said Tammy Parris, Director, Regional Offices and Insurance Operations for HSB BI&I.

IBAC Chief Executive Officer Peter Braid added: “We greatly appreciate BI&I’s continued partnership and their commitment to the broker channel. Their investment is a strong vote of confidence in the important role that brokers play in providing expert insurance advice, and supporting and advocating for their clients when they need it most.”
