Employee benefits that protect you and your employees

We’re a leading provider of employee benefits offered through the workplace – and committed to making you and your employees our number one priority.

Who we are
Supporting you and your employees at every step

We’re there when it matters 

We provide financial protection through the workplace, whether that’s to cover the cost of dental bills, provide financial support in times of illness or injury, or in the event of an untimely death. We work closely with our clients to ensure they can provide their employees with the reassurance of that protection.

We focus on wellbeing 

We know that benefits at work have the potential to provide business rewards through keeping people healthy. Not only do we stand ready to protect people financially, but we are committed to supporting employee wellbeing. We work collaboratively with our customers to understand the problems they face and create benefits and services to meet those needs.

It’s all we’ve ever done

Specialist employee benefits insurance is all we've ever done, so we're not just expert in it, but strive to push the boundaries of what it can do.

Find an adviser

We offer our products to employers via advisers — this can help ensure you get employee benefits that are the best fit for your company and your staff. Websites such as Unbiased.co.uk can help you find an independent financial adviser.
