- About Towergate
Towergate is an entrepreneurial company, led by people with a
reputation for innovation and professionalism.
Since 1997, when Towergate entered the insurance market, we have
grown to become Europe's largest independently owned insurance
intermediary turning over more than £2 billion of gross written
premium across our companies.
Our Broking Division spans the width and breadth of the UK, providing a highly trusted local service to both individual and business customers.
With over 200 products - the widest range in the industry – we excel in both general commercial lines and in niche markets from golf clubs and motor racing to doctors and truck drivers.
The acquisition of Countrywide and Broker Network places Towergate as the UK's number one provider of network services to insurance brokers.
Towergate’s expansion into new markets including mortgage protection and personal finance means that customers benefit from our product value and outstanding customer service.
The UK’s leading supplier of mortgage protection and household insurance products, Paymentshield has a strong reputation for expertise and product knowledge.
What we do
With over 5,000 committed staff, based across more than 120 UK
offices, gives you and your business access to real product
knowledge along with a personal approach to service that can be
completely trusted. We offer an unsurpassed range of over 200
general and specialist insurance products for niche markets ranging
from holiday homes to private helicopters. We believe we are
also the most significant insurance provider to the UK SME
How we do it
We have grown dynamically by giving our customers what they
want. Our business model is based on creating innovative products
combined with great customer service, underpinned by trusted
relationships with leading insurers. This is the basis of our
"Value Triangle" - a three-way partnership
between the customer, the insurer and ourselves.
It is fashionable for companies to make bold claims about their
‘green’ credentials, and ‘carbon footprint’. We are realistic that,
as a group of more than 120 businesses, we have a wide variety of
premises and workplaces right up to our new headquarters in Kent
and other newer offices that possess high levels of efficiency and
environmental friendliness. Read our
