Where it all began
Our story began with you. In 1972 we saw that public sector employees needed expert financial and retirement advice - particularly around their complex pension rules. We wanted to meet that need, and protect the people who look after everyone else. Over the years, we've expanded our product range to ensure we cover all your insurance and financial needs. Ever since, we’ve worked with public sector unions, associations and employers, together building group schemes with benefits designed around their members, focused on their profession.
Our subsidiary, Cornmarket Insurance Services Ltd. specialises in providing car, home and motorbike insurance to affinity groups in the UK.
