We are an SME ourselves and encounter all the same challenges as our customers when it comes to running a small business. We aim to make arranging your insurance cover as straightforward and painless as possible so it doesn't become one of those challenges. We are there to support your business if there are bumps in the road.

The insurance industry has been undergoing a period of consolidation with traditional high street brokers becoming fewer and further between. As insurers seek to cut costs, taking people out of the equation, buying insurance online has been promoted. Whilst this works well for some, many clients benefit from the expertise, advice and access to a greater variety of Insurers and types of policy that using an Insurance Broker can provide.
Ultimately as a business owner you learn to recognise your strengths and weaknesses as well as how many hours there are in the day. Outsourcing particular tasks to people and businesses with knowledge and expertise is a way to make your life easier and strengthen your business. Engaging an insurance broker is one of the most cost effective ways of doing this as their fees are part of the overall insurance premium (for some products there is a product fee).
Forster Cameron Insurance Brokers is an Authorised Representative of TEn Insurance Services. Clients receive the bespoke service of an independent broker whilst benefitting from the advantages of size and scale that being part of a much larger network bring in terms of access to a wider variety of insurers and achieving competitive terms .
