BHIB Insurance brokers have been doing some big thinking over the festive break and launched a new brand, aimed at tapping into the fast-growing gig economy sector. More people in the UK are trying to make ends meet with a side hustle gig, from food delivery to mobile gardening, product photography to web development. Here’s the press release;
From freelancers to small limited companies, Create Insurance is a new way for self-employed people in the creative sector to purchase personalised insurance online within minutes.
Create’s bespoke product offering has been built with freelancers in mind by our highly skilled and qualified team that specialises in the Film, Media and Entertainment Industry.
Customers can choose from a suite of appropriate levels of cover for their equipment, their work, and themselves. General insurance policies are underwritten by Hiscox, while life insurance and income protection are provided by Vitality.
Built by our own software provider Brokertech, Create gives freelancers full control on the types and levels of insurance cover they buy – whether this is for short-term projects or on an annual basis.
