Towergate began its journey in 1997, and since then we have acquired over 300 specialist insurance companies that make us who we are today. Whilst Towergate may have only recently celebrated its 20th birthday, many of the companies we acquired have long and rich histories that continue to provide expertise and customer service. For instance, our medical insurance team can trace itself back over 100 years!
We employ over 4,000 staff nationwide. Our advisers are trained extensively so that they can advise you on what sort of cover is suitable for you. Even our staff who aren’t customer facing are required to test themselves periodically on the rules and regulations surrounding insurance. Our advisers also tend to be knowledgeable and involved in the worlds in which they work. For example, our marine insurance team spend a day with the Royal Yachting Association to understand the differences between different types of craft and understand what each one may be used for and even which components may be at risk of damage.
In addition to working with some of the largest insurers in the UK and worldwide, we also work with nearly 100 industry associations and partners to better understand your needs and how we can provide policies that really work for you. To name just a few, we have strong relationships with the British Independent Retailers Association, Care England, Team Army UK and The Fostering Network.
