’We are delighted to be able to expand our offering of choice,’ says chief commercial officer

Simply Business is expanding its commercial combined offering for larger businesses after inking a new deal with insurer Zurich.

The deal will see Zurich be able to provide quotes for businesses with a turnover of £750,000 or more through the digital broker.

Customers are able to purchase their policies online and manage them through Simply Business’s contact centre in Northampton.

Julie Fisher, chief commercial officer at Simply Business, said: “We are delighted to be able to expand our offering of choice, simplicity and value to new and existing customers through our partnership with Zurich – a brand with a wealth of experience and knowledge in the SME sector.”


Simply Business delivers policies tailored to individual business requirements and covers 1,200 trade types.

It offers products online on behalf of a broad panel of carriers, including NIG, Chiswell Insurance, More Than, Hiscox, Axa, Zurich, AIG, Covea and Churchill.

Its decision to expand its offering for larger businesses came after the firm saw a six-fold increase in potential customers seeking quotes through digital journeys.

David Nichols, head of retail at Zurich, said: “As our relationship with Simply Business continues to evolve, we see this as a natural progression to enable them to fulfil the increasing demand for access to more complex risks.

”We are delighted to expand our product offering and continue to partner with one of the leading providers in the digital SME space.”
