AXA Partners extends Ardonagh retail brand partnership

AXA Partners has extended its partnership with the retail division of The Ardonagh Group.

Under the extended multi-year deal, AXA Partners will provide motor and home service to three of Atlanta Group’s biggest brands.

The AXA business unit already works with the Autonet, Swinton Group and Carole Nash brands. The Swinton Group partnership has been in place for more than 15 years.

The three brands will continue to receive products and services from the AXA Partners portfolio, including motor breakdown, a large range of other motor ancillary products, and home emergency cover.

Ian Donaldson, chief executive officer at Atlanta Group, said: “We decided to extend our partnership with AXA Partners, based on the trust that we have, in their capability as an assistance provider. We are also impressed with the dedicated approach that they give to managing our brands and, of course, the high standard of service that our customers receive.”

“We have a strong working relationship, jointly reviewing and adapting the products and services that we provide, to ensure that we are always meeting the needs of our various brands and providing value. I am delighted to be able to continue, what is already, a successful partnership—for the benefit of our customers.”

Jason Sparrow, sales director at AXA Partners, commented: “We are extremely pleased that Atlanta has chosen to extend their relationship with AXA Partners, which is testament to our ability as a B2B assistance provider.”

“We make sure that each of Atlanta’s brands receive products and services that fit their customers’ needs; each brand has its own dedicated account management and a bespoke offering. At the same time, with our focus always being on the customer, we pride ourselves in being able to provide the level of service that they deserve.”

“We look forward to working together during the next phase of our partnership, continuing to do all of the above, and more.”

AXA Partners teamed up with challenger bank Monzo earlier this year to offer comprehensive travel insurance through one of its accounts.

The travel insurance policy option for the £6-per-month bank account is being underwritten by AXA Partners, the dedicated business unit of AXA set up in 2015 to pursue the co-creation of offers and distribution agreements.
