About Us

Built on experience

The business was formed in 2014 by a team of risk and insurance professionals who between them have over 100 years’ experience.

Our directors have a background working in major insurance brokers and PLC and share the belief that the sector is being driven by short-term goals which are not in the best interests of clients.

 

Standing alongside every client

Every client matters to us and we are committed to making sure this is constantly reflected in the service we offer.

 

Our values

Honest

We are regulated by the FCA and adhere to their core standard of Treating Customers Fairly. This means our clients can have the confidence that whatever advice we offer is delivered with their interests in mind.

Specialist advice

Colmore Insurance Brokers have years of combined experience gained from several different established organisations. This combined experience enables our team to take a holistic approach to risk and deliver bespoke insurance solutions.

Client-focused

The client is at the heart of all we do. We are an independent broker with access to leading insurers, such as Lloyds. But because we are not constrained by any insurer, our services are steered by our client’s requirements and not by insurer earnings.

Passionate

The right cover helps purify the air around your business. Meanwhile, we work to ensure any claims and renewals are dealt with smoothly.

 

Our three pillars of service 

Colmore Insurance Brokers go against the grain to deliver a personalised service. This is achieved through three key pillars:

1) Providing competitive insurance premiums which deliver commercial value for clients.

2) Implement insurance and risk management programmes which are aligned to client’s risk profiles.

3) Delivery of an outstanding client service experience.
