Equipsme Distribution Director, Gavin Shay, comments:
“SMEs are the lifeblood of the Welsh economy, responsible for over 40% of turnover and providing 62% of private sector employment – yet few appear to include health insurance as part of their employee benefit programmes. There is clearly an enormous opportunity for us in the Welsh market and we have found the right partner in Watkin Davies to help us maximise that opportunity. They are hugely proud of their Welsh heritage and passionate about providing their customers with the very best service and support.”
One of Wales’ largest independent insurance brokers, Watkin Davies operates out of offices in Cardiff and Newport. Managing Director, Georgina Dixon, says:
“Why wouldn’t you want to protect your most important asset? We’ve been looking for the right health insurance proposition for our staff for some time and in finding out more about Equipsme, we found the perfect fit for our needs. It’s competitively priced with the added bonus that our staff can choose to extend cover to their family. Having Equipsme cover themselves, our team are ideally positioned to discuss its benefits with our SME clients. It’s a smart, affordable solution to a real business need and we’re excited and proud to be the exclusive provider here in Wales.”
Equipsme allows businesses with more than two employees to provide health support plans to the whole of their workforce. Every plan holder receives a home health check and has 24/7 access to a private GP service. Diagnosis and treatment are provided by leading private health insurance provider AXA PPP healthcare.
