Pulse - Christmas Broker Briefing

Happy Christmas from all of us at Pulse Insurance and STB. 

Whether you are working or spending time with friends or family have a fantastic time!

Winter sports insurance: It’s the time of year when people are thinking of taking to the slopes and, as you know, it's important to ensure your clients are aware of the need for comprehensive travel insurance to protect them should the worst happen. Injuries sustained during skiing and snowboarding tend to be major, such as ligament damage, dislocations and bone breaks.

Travelling without insurance means that medical bills – particularly in North America – can be the most painful aspect of an injury. Apart from your own medical coverage, holiday cancellation and loss of equipment, insurance can protect against personal liability, lost holiday days due to weather and ski passes.

Updates from the Group

Thank you to everyone for your support in 2019; we are really looking forward to seeing what 2020 will bring.  This has been a huge year for Pulse: we now have offices in London, Brackley and Norwich; each focussing on separate parts of our business.  At this time, when so many past certainties seem to be being questioned, we are really positive about the future.  There are many challenges ahead but we believe that there has never been a greater need for the nimble, innovative approach that Pulse Insurance offer.   

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and thank you for your continuing support!

Torquil McLusky, Managing Director

 The team at STB Insurance Brokers are a great addition to the Pulse family and the fact that we are now able to help our clients and customers in so many areas is incredibly exciting for all of us who have watched Pulse developing into a true underwriting business, capable of supporting our partners across so many complex requirements. 

Our life and protection, specialty, sports and leisure and schemes divisions all provide dedicated, committed and highly experienced people who can help and offer a personal and human response. 

Brackley

The team in Brackley offer life and protection insurance to groups and individuals who cannot get cover from the standard market.  They help people who have been declined cover on medical grounds, those who struggle to obtain cover because of the type of work they do or where they live, or those requiring cover for larger sums insured.  They are particularly adept at helping SME groups with complex cover requirements.

Call the team on 01280 841430 or email admin@pulse-insurance.co.uk to discuss what you need.

London

It has been a remarkable year for the Specialty Division with a number of exciting developments taking place. We have partnered with several excellent providers such as Travelers, Healix, Constellis and Sentry Solutions to name but a few. Each of them enhances our proposition by allowing us to utilise their services to enable us to deliver quality products combined with market leading service standards and flexibility. Also the acquisition of STB in Norwich enabled us to branch into a number of new classes, which furthers our reputation as a ‘one stop shop’ MGA. 2020 promises to be another fantastic year with many exciting opportunities in the pipeline so watch this space!

Joe Balsom – Head of Specialty.
