AG founded

We can trace our roots back to 1824 when AG Insurance was founded in Belgium – there began our journey as a life insurer. We would soon start expanding our cover and products.


Bishopgate founded

In 1939, we formed as Bishopgate Insurance in the UK. Since then, we continued to expand our insurance business sold through brokers in the following decades.

Rias bought

In 1997, we bought our first independent brand. At Rias, we're committed to high quality, affordable car and home insurance, and unbeatable customer service.

Fortis Insurance

We bought Northern Star in 2000 and became Fortis Insurance. As Fortis, we strengthened our presence in the UK through broker distribution and by partnering up with high profile brands.

Ageas brand created

In 2010, we renamed Fortis as Ageas. As a new brand in the UK market, we've continued to work with brokers and partners to deliver great outcomes for customers.

In 2018, we launched the Ageas brand direct to you! You can now purchase Ageas motor, home and pet insurance directly from us and see how we're making insurance easy first-hand.
