An Insurance broker is a professional firm regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) whose prime purpose is to help customers find suitable cost effective insurance protection. Brokers can give advice on numerous issues including support in the event of a claim. Brokers are the agent of the client; they represent the client’s interests. Source BIBA (British Insurance Brokers Association)

As your insurance broker we:

  • Listen and understand your insurance requirements.
  • Search the insurance marketplace to find the right policy that suits those requirements.
  • Offer objective, impartial advice on the cover that is appropriate for your needs.
  • Help you understand the policy of your choice
  • Clearly state all costs of your policy.
  • Provide clear information and documentation.
  • Assist you should you ever need to make a claim

If you’re shopping for unusual insurance products that you have limited knowledge of, we can use our knowledge and experience to advise you on a suitable level of cover.

We are independent and work with a carefully selected group of insurers that we have regular contact with. Pre-lockdown we were meeting with contacts from most of our insurers twice yearly. Even now we have regular telephone and zoom calls with Insurers.

Using a broker doesn’t cost more than going direct. We are paid a commission by the insurance provider for selling their products. We have agencies with all the major insurers and use a panel of insurers when we are obtaining quotation.

It’s important that no insurance jargon goes unnoticed. As a broker we are responsible for ensuring any optional extras or cover not included within your policy is clearly disclosed to give you a clear understanding for the level of cover being offered.

About Black Rock Insurance Services

Black Rock Insurance Services was set up by John Jewett in 2000. The name of the company came from the shipping Buoy in the Solent just outside Yarmouth (a replica of the buoy is outside Yarmouth school). From then on we have been going strength and have two branches, Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and Battle, East Sussex. Now Alexandra and Andrew (daughter and son of John) are directors of the company and keep the family legacy going. We provide a professional and friendly look at insurance and with the aim of helping all of our clients understand what they are purchasing and how it helps them.
