Our History

1998-2000

The company was founded in March after identifying an opportunity in the High-Net-Worth market. We commence trading in July with focus on our key objective, to establish ourselves as a specialist broker providing a high quality service.

6 months in and we employ our first member of staff, today Emma Parker is our General Manager.

We help Royal & Sun Alliance (RSA) launch into the HNW motor market and we recruit 2 dedicated sales staff. Stuart Eadon and Barry Reeve continue in sales based roles.

A year under our belt and we report a healthy turnover of £600k.

An opportunity is established online and we launch tailoredinsurance.com, we wanted to strengthen and identify with our bespoke insurance solutions.

With growth in mind we move to larger premises and remain highly active in the HNW arena. We continue to progress the company and secure numerous high profile clients including international football stars, film & TV personalities, corporate leaders and entrepreneurs.

Our successes continue and we file a turnover of £1.9 million.

We secure a £1 million deal to provide 'opt out' company car insurance solutions for Opticar whose clients included Hutchinson 3G and Morgan Est.

We've been very, very busy. The company is acknowledged as the first provincial broker in the UK to achieve a £1 million turnover with the newly formed HNW insurer, Zurich Private Clients.

We acquire a local but nationally operating home insurance broker to add value to our property book.

We re-launch our website offering an improved affiliate management system and an enhanced end-user experience.

We also secure an exciting partnership deal with HR Owen and all of its luxury car outlets, including Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Roll Royce.
