Ecclesiastical was established in 1887 to protect churches and church buildings against the risk of fire. Today, we’re an independent, specialist financial services group, providing tailored insurance solutions for organisations and people in the UK and internationally. These include charities, the education and faith sectors, heritage buildings, homes and fine art.
In the UK, we're the market leading insurer of Grade I listed buildings, insure more than 40,000 charities, more than 22,000 churches of all denominations, over 40% of independent schools and, with other insurers, 10 of the UK's World Heritage sites.
Worldwide we insure over £275bn of property and we're the leading insurer of Anglican churches in all our territories.
We also provide a range of specialist investment management, risk management, broking and advisory services, to meet the specific needs of our customers and business partners.
Owned by an independent charity, we are the UK's No. 1 insurer for charitable giving*.
