General insurance provider, Berkeley Alexander (BA), has today announced it is expanding its operations and investing in new offices to cater for growth. The new offices will accommodate up to 40% more staff.
Moving only one mile, Berkeley Alexander expects to relocate to their new premises in Lewes by the end of March, as extensive refurbishment works are currently underway.
Berkeley Alexander occupies a unique place in this market, offering brokers and IFAs an outsourced general insurance department accessing a range of market leading products and service from one of the UK’s largest panel of GI insurers. It focusses on niche areas such as mid and high net worth (HNW), property owners (both commercial and residential) commercial and non-standard, coupled with online standard insurance. Established for 40 years in 2020, the business is part of one of the biggest UK insurance intermediaries, The Ardonagh Group.
Geoff Hall, Chairman of Berkeley Alexander, comments: “It’s exciting times for Berkeley Alexander; the investment we’re making in our business is evidence that we’re committed to growing our team which will mean we can continue providing existing and new clients with the best possible outcomes and service, plus it provides confidence we can fulfil our future ambitions.
We’ve continued to grow year-on-year and now provide services to over 3500 intermediaries. This move is something we have been working on for nearly 12 months now and it is desperately needed as we are bursting at the seams! The new office will provide us with all the room and facilities we need to go to the next level.
“We have a truly unique proposition which is proving very popular in the market. Our mix of delivering streamlined online sales backed up with a personal service is keeping us one step ahead of the competition and the market. We are tapping into high growth markets like HNW and growing both our distribution and customer base. As always, we will not stop here and will invest further across all areas of our business to ensure we continue to be the adviser’s general insurance provider of choice.”
