It’s a big one for Simply Business, as they announced last week that they have partnered with Barclays. Many small businesses and sole traders will be looking for the best deals on finance and insurance, as they adapt to a post-pandemic world.
The new partnership will enable small businesses, including Barclays’ one million business customers, to obtain a business insurance quote via Barclays.co.uk or over the phone. They will be able to choose from a panel of well-known insurers, tailoring the policy to suit their needs.
Julie Fisher, UK CCO of Simply Business, comments: “We’re passionate about helping entrepreneurs protect the businesses they have worked hard to build, and we’re thrilled to provide our tailored SME and commercial landlord insurance to Barclays Business Banking customers. This partnership represents an exciting opportunity to deliver simplicity, choice and value in commercial insurance solutions to an important group of small businesses across the country.”
Hannah Bernard, Head of Barclays Business Banking, said: “We know that finding the right insurance policy can be a bit of a headache for small businesses. We hope this partnership with Simply Business will make choosing business insurance easier, faster and more cost effective for our customers – as well as giving valuable peace of mind.”
The collaboration is the latest in a series of strategic partnerships announced by Barclays over the last few years, with MarketFinance, Nimbla, Propel and Smart Pension offering invoice financing, insurance products, asset finance and pension solutions to thousands of Barclays Business Banking clients.
Barclays continues to support small businesses across the UK through the ongoing challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, and has facilitated £29.5 billion of funding through the Government business loan schemes to over 350,000 businesses in every sector and every region across the country.
