AXA Connect

Ipswich Branch


The Ipswich team has excellent local market knowledge and strong relationships with regional brokers. Our Senior Underwriters have an average of 25 years’ experience in insurance, and they impart their knowledge upon the less experienced members of the team to develop strong underwriting capabilities!


Ipswich has the longest serving team throughout AXA Commercial Lines and with many of us based in the heart of East Anglia we boast many deep rooted relationships with many of our key accounts. Our location means we have a heavy involvement in the logistics, haulage and fleet sector and would consider ourselves experts in this area.

We have a significant Schemes account which is regarded as a centre of excellence for Schemes.

Catchment Area

Suffolk, Norfolk, North Essex and Cambridge.
