About the employer

Our primary function in today's society is to sell insurance professionally in a market that's complicated and confusing to the average customer, whether they're personal or corporate.

Insurance companies have disappeared from most towns and cities in the UK and this has meant that brokers like us make up the public face of insurance.

We have served the local business and private community for the past three and a half decades and witnessed many changes both in the financial sector and the insurance market.

We understand that you, the customer simply wants to buy insurance at the cheapest price but insurance is complicated and our value to you is the ability to explain and interpret the contract. We determine the best option for you by taking into account the extent of cover, price and the financial security of the insurer.
