Unica Insurance rated five stars across the board

Unica Insurance has been rated Five Stars once again in the latest report issued by Insurance Business Canada magazine

Online PR News – 05-August-2020 – Toronto, ON – For the second year in a row, Unica Insurance has been named a Five-Star Carrier in Insurance Business Canada magazine’s annual Five-Star Carriers report. The prestigious list spotlights the companies that have received the highest ratings in this year’s broker’s survey of insurance carriers nationwide by consistently providing top-notch service.

IBC asked hundreds of insurance brokers from across the country to rate their carriers on a scale of 1 (poor) to 10 (excellent) across eight categories, from underwriting expertise and quick quotes to competitive rates and claims processing. The highest-scoring companies – 24 in total, up from 16 last year - were awarded five-star designations. On top of that, Unica Insurance is one of only four companies that earned five-star status in every single category this year, receiving the mantle of All-Star Carrier.

Unica Insurance is a niche carrier focused on seven commercial segments and high-net-worth personal insurance solutions. “This laser-sharp focus allows us to really understand the needs of these customers and deliver best-in-class insurance solutions and claims services that directly align with their needs and expectations,” says COO Dave Smiley. Unica also refocused its broker strategy to semi-exclusive appointments. “A real linchpin of Unica’s strategy is to deliver industry-leading service and build strong, strategic relationships with our broker partners,” Smiley says. “We’re a big proponent of ‘less is more,’ and the only way for us to build those relationships and deliver real value is by having a limited number of relationships and making them more meaningful.”

Unica was an IBC Five-Star Carrier and Top Insurance Workplace in 2019; the company also won P&C Insurer of the Year at the 2019 Insurance Business Canada Awards. “[These are all] an acknowledgement of the work we’ve put into the reinvention of Unica over the last 10 years,” Smiley says. “It’s great to have some recognition of our progression and our success, and we’re very grateful that our brokers see us as a valued partner.”
