Despite the various challenges that last year brought to the insurance marketplace, Folgate still managed to achieve strong growth in numerous areas of the business in 2021.

One such area of growth was across our SME product offering, with increases in enquiry levels, and strong conversion and renewal retention rates.

We recognise that service and underwriting consistency remain paramount for our network of brokers and to ensure Folgate maintains the high standards our brokers have come to expect, we have made some key appointments within the SME underwriting team.

The SME team, headed up by Scott Higgs (pictured) is made up of:

Nancy Brown – Assistant Underwriter
Sarah Geddes – Underwriter
Chris Sharp – Senior Underwriter

Sarah Geddes and Chris Sharp both joined the business within the last 12 months and will help drive the success of the SME underwriting plan for the year. We would also like to congratulate Nancy Brown who has recently received her Underwriting License and continues to offer vital support to the rest of her team and Folgate’s valued broker partners.

As a reminder here is the current list of SME products that Folgate currently offer:

  • Hotels and Guesthouses (Extranet Platform)
  • Offices and Surgeries (Extranet Platform and Acturis)
  • Shopkeepers (Extranet Platform and Acturis)
  • Commercial Combined (Extranet Platform and Paper Quote Submission)
  • Bespoke – Material Damage / Liability in isolation (Extranet Platform and Email Submissions)
