"The Compass model is one of the key elements that attracted TRA to align ourselves with Compass. Their model deals exclusively with, and specialises in, Underwriting Agencies. The interests of the Underwriting Agency is Compass’ core focus, thus allowing the agencies to benefit hugely from their technical support, as well as their understanding of the niche underwriter – as Compass is themselves an operator in a niche market. There is no competition with the principal risk carrier and so the whole Compass model is designed to support and market their agencies, not themselves. Another facet is the Compass value system which is a perfect fit for TRA and provides values with which it is easy for us to align ourselves."
