UK-based broker network Keychoice has formed a strategic partnership with LV= Broker to provide its members with access to more than 800 independent brokers.

Under the partnership, Keychoice members can access LV= Broker’s ABC home product, which will be available immediately and provides up to £1m of buildings cover and up to £150,000 contents cover as standard.

In order to help them to retain and grow their household business, Keychoice members are provided with an exclusive rating discount against LV= Broker’s standard open-market rates.

LV= Broker personal lines director Michael Lawrence said the partnership will enable the company to expand distribution to more independent brokers.

"Keychoice members have a great track record for writing good quality, profitable business and we look forward to working with them," Lawrence added.

Keychoice head of insurer and business partner relationships Kate Mutter-Bowen said that the partnership is another key step in the development of our one stop shop proposition.
