An independent, specialist financial services group, we’re a commercial business with a charitable purpose. We grant a significant proportion of our profits to our charitable owner, which invests them independently into communities. We also have our own charitable giving programme. Since 2014 we have given £50m to good causes and our new target is to give a further £100m by 2020.
We can do this because we manage a global portfolio of successful businesses. Worldwide, we insure over £275bn of property and in the UK we’re the leading insurer of Grade I listed buildings, insure more than 40,000 charities, 22,000 churches and over 40% of independent schools. We also provide specialist investment management, risk management, broking and advisory services.
We’re the 2016 Better Society’s Insurance Company of the Year.
We top the Fairer Finance table of home insurance providers.
We accept 93.5% of claims (compared to 79% industry average**).
We’re one of only 34 UK companies with the Business in Community CommunityMark.
Our investment management business, EdenTree, has won multiple awards for its ethical investment funds.
