Poole, Dorset (PRWEB UK) 8 February 2013
A new player has launched into the mid to high net worth and non-standard home insurance markets under the Highworth Insurance brand. The company is headed by former Castle Cover founder and Managing Director, Andrew Marchington. He is joined by two former colleagues, Peter Leppington who heads up finance and Anthony Burt who leads operations. Highworth Insurance is located in Poole, Dorset.
Highworth Insurance will focus on home insurance that would normally fall outside the risk profile of a standard home insurance policy. They already have a number of specialist schemes that cover a broad basket of profiles including mid to high net worth, landlords, holiday homes and non-standard construction. In addition to their contact centre, the business already has a number of bespoke schemes available to quote and buy on line. Commenting on the launch Andrew Marchington, Managing Director of Highworth Insurance said “It’s very exciting to launch another business in the home insurance sector initially direct to consumers. We will also be offering our capability to third parties who want to capitalise on home insurance opportunities. There are occasions where they may find it difficult to help a potential customer but a specialist like Highworth Insurance can satisfy the customer and provide additional income for the partner.”
