Many businesses say they are different.

Ecclesiastical really is.

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.
