SME health benefits provider, Equipsme, has appointed JM Glendinning Insurance Brokers as its broker distribution partner in Yorkshire.
Headquartered in Leeds, JM Glendinning also has offices in Newcastle, Scarborough, York, Sheffield and Birmingham.
Equipsme Distribution Director, Gavin Shay, says: “We’re delighted to bring JM Glendinning on to our distribution panel. It is a highly professional business that has built a strong brand across the region. The firm has a really strong sales team that has a great reputation of looking after their SME customers. For us, they represented the natural choice as our partner to distribute our range of health insurance products in Yorkshire.”
Nick Houghton, Group Managing Director of JM Glendinning, adds: “There is a thriving business community across Yorkshire and we think that the Equipsme product range is going to appeal to all shapes and sizes of SMEs here. It’s so easy to understand – there isn’t the complicated language that you associate with traditional PMI policies, or the lengthy questionnaires to fill in. That’s why we decided that it sits better with our commercial insurance team. It’s a natural extension of what they do on a day to day basis to help their customers better manage their risks.”
Launched at the beginning of March, Equipsme enables businesses with two to 249 employees to provide health benefits to their workforce. Cover options range from £7 to £37 per employee per month and employees can choose to upgrade their own level of cover or add family members through their mobile devices.
