With over 380,000* policies and over 300 employees, Cornmarket is one of Ireland's largest Insurance Brokers. Since 1972, Cornmarket has been serving the needs of Public Sector employees and their families, helping protect what’s important to them. Working closely with unions and other employers, Cornmarket helps customers find the right financial products to suit their needs from car, home and health insurance to life insurance, income protection, retirement planning and more.
On winning the award, Roddy Murphy, Managing Director of Cornmarket said ‘We are delighted to have won the award again this year. It is a testament to the commitment and hard work of the Cornmarket team. For nearly 50 years we have worked with Public Sector employees to ensure they are financially prepared for the future, a role which we are proud to have held for such a great length of time.’
2018 has been a big year for Cornmarket with a number of new business objectives completed. They recently rebranded to revitalize the look of the Group and are very close to the launch of a new website, which will enhance customer experience and add to the superior customer service they aim to achieve.
Their product range has also widened, as they have recently launched a new Travel Insurance product and excitingly re-entered the Mortgage market. This is a positive step for Cornmarket and a great addition for its customer base in the Republic of Ireland. Cornmarket’s Financial Planning Service already provides invaluable advice to Public Sector employees on their complex pension rules, savings, investments and protection.
Not only has Cornmarket focused on improving their customer experience and product portfolio this year, they have also launched a new sponsorship initiative for Teachers and Transition year students in schools nationwide. Breast Cancer Ireland and Cornmarket have come together to promote Breast Health Education and Awareness in Schools. The aim of the programme is to encourage and educate women about good breast health from a young age, so that if an abnormality occurs it will be identified early and hopefully provide a more positive treatment outcome. Cornmarket is the sole sponsor of the programme which offers this excellent service free of charge to students and teachers around the country.
We’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store next for Cornmarket. Each year they push for improvement and it will be exciting to see what 2019 will bring for the Group.
