Our story

Why we are industry pioneers

Back in 1977, we became the first company in the UK to provide premium finance, when a neighbouring insurance broker came to us with a problem to be solved. In Ireland, we have been providing dedicated support to our broker partners for more than 20 years.  Today, we’re not only the most experienced provider of premium finance in the business, but there’s one thing on which we place a premium above all else – our service to you.

A trusted partner

We work in partnership with you

Working this way is important – for both of us. Your needs and goals, and those of your customers, shape how we work with you. Our three core values are why you can rely on us:


You demand the best products – we deliver them with people you can get to know, trust and rely upon.


We work with you to innovate and improve, offering insights and guidance whenever it's needed.


People are at the heart of everything we do. Together with you, our broker partners, we find the best solutions for you and your customers.

Our people

How we deliver on our promises to you

Great people, building solid relationships are at the heart of everything we do. That's how we bring our unique expertise and experience to maximise every opportunity – for each and all of our valued broker partners.

What we do

We help make insurance more manageable for your customers

Our premium finance products are all about helping your customers manage their finances – by allowing them to spread the cost of their insurance over regular, monthly payments.
