Purpose and principles

We're not hampered by the demands of shareholders motivated to make a profit, meaning we're free to act differently from the rest. We focus on the service we provide to our members. We're all trained first and foremost to listen. To ask questions with empathy, respect and understanding. To give the best advice. To never rush. To care.

We are one of the few insurers to volunteer details of ombudsman complaints against us.
