How can we help?

Our insurance

From public liability insurance for injury and property damage, to employers’ liability cover for your staff and freelancers, we offer the core covers you need, plus specific options for a range of risks, such as professional indemnity, or protection for your equipment.

Your business

As one of the UK’s biggest commercial insurance brokers, we provide business insurance tailored to your needs. We specialise in small business insurance and protect tradesmen, shops, restaurants, pubs, self-employed professionals and many more. We can even cover you for e-commerce, with our online retail insurance.

Just for landlords

Landlords need insurance as much as the next business, if not more. Whether it’s your first buy-to-let or a commercial property, tailor our landlord insurance options to get the protection you need. It’s flexible cover, with options for things like buildings, contents and loss of rent.
