Find out more about brokers and how to find one

Just like we are, insurance brokers are professional businesses that are regulated to sell policies by the Financial Conduct Authority. And also like us, they’re there to help you find the best cover for you, at the best possible price.

A broker can advise you on all sorts of things, including giving you guidance and choice on a range of risk management services and insurance products, and supporting you if you need to make a claim. In a nutshell, they’re your agent and represent your needs.

Why use a broker?

  • A broker will give you professional and independent advice
  • They’ll find you cover to suit you, from a range of products from various insurance companies
  • Brokers are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority to make sure they treat you competently and fairly
  • They can help you work out what cover you need, find the right policy for you and help you if you need to make a claim
