Financial Lines Announcement 14.11.14

After due consideration, we have taken the decision to focus our attention on Liability, Motor and Property classes of business. As a result of this focus we have decided to withdraw our PI and D&O products and are no longer quoting on this business from 14/11/14 (renewals will be offered until 31/12/14 only). The facility to quote or renew policies on our online trading system “This Way” has been disabled, however you are still able to access any live policies.

We apologise if our change in strategy causes you any inconvenience, but know you will appreciate the exciting developments that are ahead for our remaining business classes – watch this space!

If you have any queries or would like to discuss this, please contact your dedicated team.
