LONDON, 7 September, 2021 — New MGA Nivante was launched today by NuVenture International Ltd. to provide specialist combined insurance products for the UK care sector, offering brokers and their care provider clients greater choice. Nivante is co-founded by Jade Knight and Melissa Kalsi, two specialist, experienced underwriters in the UK care sector.
Available only through brokers, and partnered with A rated capacity, the new MGA provides combined insurance products including liability, property damage, and medical malpractice to a wide range of care organisations involved in delivering specialist services to adults and children with a diverse range of needs.

Commenting on the launch of Nivante, Jade Knight, Managing Director and Melissa Kalsi, Director said: “We are excited to announce the launch of Nivante and we’re passionate about making a difference in the care sector and offering greater choice to our brokers and their clients.

We are dedicated to engaging with the sector and the regulators to continuously innovate and develop our products and services to make life a little easier for care providers when making their insurance arrangements.

“We have worked to bring this project to fruition with the support of the NuVenture team. Inspired by the leaders profiled in this year’s National Women’s Day, we are especially proud to have achieved this milestone as female leaders and hope our journey will inspire others to do the same.”

Andy Colbran, CEO, NuVenture, said: “Nivante is the second MGA launched by NuVenture and we’re pleased to provide a fresh insurance option to a sector of the market which is experiencing capital constraints. Jade Knight and Melissa Kalsi are exactly the kind of experienced underwriters that we want to bring into the NuVenture group and I’m excited to work with them as they bring their new proposition to the market.”
