Drewberry was launched in 2009 when Andrew Jenkinson and Tom Conner, our founders, recognised the opportunity for a different approach to how people in the UK bought life insurance, critical illness cover and income protection.
Back then, the web technologies employed by the insurance industry focused almost entirely on quote engines aimed at generating ‘competitive’ premiums. But with little or no clear product information available, those seeking cover were surrounded on all sides by acres of dense small print and industry jargon making it impossible to compare like with like.
As a result, Drewberry Insurance was born.
Empowering our clients
We build new end-user technologies from the ground up, which means we can keep the focus on client education, not product sales. This empowers our clients by helping them to make more informed decisions about what’s best for their needs. All this is fuelled by our passionate team of planning experts in our London and Brighton offices, each of whom are focused on making a difference for our clients.
Our focus on the client – and not on the sale – helped to make us one of the fastest growing companies of our kind in the country. We have one of the top-rated personal insurance websites in the UK and a rapidly growing number of followers on both Facebook and Twitter. You’ll also see that we’re frequently quoted in the national press and that we have a growing reputation in the media as leading financial experts.
As a result, we were shortlisted for Small Intermediary of the Year at the Cover Excellence Awards in 2014 and for Protection Intermediary of the Year in 2015. Tom Conner, Director of Drewberry, also won ‘highly commended’ for the Individual Protection Adviser of the Year at the 2015 Protection Review Awards.
Honest and friendly. Gave me the feeling that they had my best interests at heart. I went elsewhere for alternative quotes but Drewberry came out on top all round.
Victoria Slade has been consistently prompt, personable, efficient and a great communicator. It is the first time that we have had straightforward dealings with financial services since becoming qualified doctors 20 years ago. Well done!
Excellent service from the Drewberry team. Highly recommended for IT contractors like me seeking whole of market advice for Income Protection.
