Specialist Insurance Brokers Join Forces to Access Larger Share of Market
Specialist charity and church insurance brokers, Access Insurance and A T Bell Insurance Brokers Ltd are delighted to announce that the client portfolio and staff of A T Bell will now be incorporated into Access Insurance.
The move comes as AT Bell celebrates their 40th year of trading. Peter Bell said “I see this as a positive step in securing the next 40 years for my clients. I am confident that this new arrangement will enable us to continue to look after our clients with the highest integrity and expertise, whilst ensuring the growth and stability of our client base for the future”.
AT Bell are well known as the broker for the Christian community and Access Insurance has been growing rapidly in the charity sector. By coming together the two companies have a fantastic opportunity to become the leading insurance broker to the Christian and third sector communities.
Simon Hickman of Access explains, “The combined operation draws on the strengths and expertise of the two companies enabling it to have greater influence in the insurance market place to benefit our clients. We have ambitious targets to achieve and are now focusing on continued growth by providing excellent service and solutions for all sizes of charities, notfor-profit organisations and umbrella groups”
Access plan to draw on the expertise of A T Bell with an expansion of their prescence in the activity and leisure sector, where the combined brokers will have facilities for a range of risks including activity centres and a specific policy for Christian performing artists.
Simon adds; “Our small charity policy is selling well but this is being reviewed to take advantage of the current “Big Society” focus. In addition to growing our large charity division, we are actively pursuing church risks at the individual and corporate level.”
