South Essex Insurance Brokers (SELB) and SLE Worldwide have entered a strategic partnership dedicated to equestrian business to expand the range of products and risk management facilities to the sector.

SEIB is the broker and SLE is the underwriter to the British Horse Society. "Our goal has been to form strong connections with brokers dedicated to specific areas of the sports and leisure industry," said SLE managing director Roger Bickmore.

SEIB managing director Barry Fehler said that SLE had proved itself a worthy business partner with its products and service which deliver value added benefits.

"We have always had a desire to work with an underwriter that is equally committed to a business sector as us and understands the exposures faced by our customers," he said.
