We are delighted to announce that Konsileo was awarded the Broker Start-up of the Year trophy in the 25th ceremony of Insurance Age’s UK Broker Awards 2018 hosted on 14 September.
The UK Broker Awards has celebrated successful businesses in the insurance broker market since 1993. We are deeply honoured by this recognition – and excited for our shiny new prize! Winning an award of this calibre endorses and encourages our vision towards reinventing the commercial insurance broking industry.
We would like to thank Insurance Age for hosting this wonderful event and the judges for recognising our potential.
Our CEO on the win
Winning Broker Start-up of the Year is a huge milestone for us as a business. And when something this big happens, you want to know what the initiators of the vision think. Here’s what Konsileo Co-founder John Warburton has to say about the award:
“We were delighted to win the prestigious Broker Start-up of the Year award from UK Broker Awards. It feels like we are finally becoming a key part of the UK Commercial Insurance Broker landscape as we build out our national network of brokers.”

How we got here
Unique in advised commercial broking, we developed a software platform which pulls in third-party data. This gives brokers more information about their customer’s unique business and improves conversation about their insurance and risk management programme.
Our organisational model and culture are equally as important. We have created a community of modern brokers without hierarchy. Brokers can work flexibly and are rewarded for working together.
Real people, powered by technology.
Many things achieved, much more to do
Since entering the Broker Start-up of the Year award, we have accomplished many of our goals. The company has already evolved in a fast pace proving the judges right about their decision.
Within the last months, we had new additions to our headquarter squad in London and we have grown our team of brokers with highly experienced professionals. One more induction event took place in late August to welcome and provide training to the new brokers. And we couldn’t be happier with the results!
September has also been a busy month, with Konsileo travelling around the UK to present John Warburton’s view on the future of insurance in the Professional Focus Conferences with the CII.
But we don’t stop here.
In the months to come, we’ll stay focused on our vision, keep on expanding our team and developing our technology. Among our plans is the launch of a new client-centred feature in our platform: the Risk Hub. This portal enables clients to keep track of their business insurance coverage and manage their information transparently. Our designers and developers have a hectic work schedule to deliver the best experience possible for our broking employees and clients.
