Coventry-based firm Askews launches insurance offering

A COVENTRY-BASED accountancy practice has created has started offering insurance options to its commercial and private clients.

Insurance options will now be offered to Askews’ clients by insurance specialist, Clair Collins, who is appointed representative of Leeds-based insurer Gauntlet Group.

The firm will have access to various insurance policies, including commercial and office insurance, private medical healthcare and life assurance and will be able to cross-sell insurance to its accountancy clients.

The relationship with Gauntlet Group will see it able to tap into the insurer’s buying power, via its Willis Commercial Network, allowing it to source competitive premiums from a range of insurance providers.

Collins said: “We are delighted to be now able to offer insurance options to our clients, as this provides us with new sources of income and demonstrates our innovative approach to our business.”

Gauntlet Group’s managing director, Roger Gaunt, says: “We are always pleased to welcome new appointed representatives and their situations are always very different, but ones that we can work around and with, thanks to our flexible approach. This is clearly demonstrated in the case of Askews, which has identified a niche and allowed us to fill it through an appointed representative relationship. We hope more accountancy practices will follow their lead.”
