Highworth Insurance sets up in Dorset
Castle Cover founder Andrew Marchington has set up a broker called Highworth Insurance to find mid to high net worth and non-standard home insurance.
Marchington will be managing director, and is joined by two former Castle colleagues, Peter Leppington, who heads up finance, and Anthony Burt, who leads operations.
Highworth is based in Poole, Dorset. The broker already runs some specialist schemes that cover areas such as mid to high net worth, landlords, holiday homes and non-standard construction.
Highworth managing director Marchington said: “It’s very exciting to launch another business in the home insurance sector initially direct to consumers.
“We will also be offering our capability to third parties who want to capitalise on home insurance opportunities. There are occasions where they may find it difficult to help a potential customer but a specialist like Highworth Insurance can satisfy the customer and provide additional income for the partner.”
