Specialist and Tailored Insurance Services

We are a specialist provider of insurance products aiming to give a personal service to corporate and individual clients.

We are regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority and are registered under number 314301.

Knowledgable and experienced

Versatile Insurance Professionals Ltd (VIP) was formed after the management buy-out of the general insurance department of Anchorman Insurance Consultants Ltd, who were formed in 1998.

We are proud of the fact that our renewal retention is exceedingly high due to competitive premiums and high standards in service.

Speedy service

New clients of ours are delighted to find a fast and friendly insurance specialist. Difficult to place insurance enquires or complex risks do naturally take longer but we will always estimate realistic response times and expectations.

We negotiate with the best underwriters available, giving our clients the cover they need at the most affordable premiums.
