About us

We have 35 years experience of protecting businesses like yours.

We’re the insurance arm of Christie & Co

Christie & Co is the UK’s leading agent for buying and selling businesses in a range of specialist sectors. When you buy a business through them, you want to be sure your investment is well-protected and insured.

Christie Insurance is part of the Christie & Co Network. With your agreement we will work seamlessly with our colleagues to arrange the right insurance you need to protect your new business. You’ll have the reassurance of knowing you’ve got the right insurance for your business, at the right price. And that any claims you may need to make in future will be handled by our in house team.

It is wise to talk to Christie Insurance well before you excahnge, the more time that we have the more time we have to establish the right facts, look for a wide range of alternatives and time for you to consider the best option that we have presented for your business. That way, you’ll be ready to buy the right policy as soon as you take ownership of your business. Just talk to one of our insurance advisors, who will take the time to get to know you and your business. Using this information, they’ll search the insurance market for potential deals which match your needs. Then they’ll draw up a recommended shortlist and propose the best insurance solution for you.

We’re an independent insurance broker

We have over 35 years’ experience independently arranging insurance for newly acquired businesses. We’re proud to offer objective advice to our clients, and to have the freedom to seek out the best deals for them – regardless of who the insurer is.

We understand our specialist sectors

Since we work in the same sectors as Christie & Co, we arrange insurance for the hotel, pubs & restaurant trade, leisure businesses, the care sector, retail (including forecourts), dentists’ surgeries and pharmacies. We have a deep understanding of these sectors, including their particular risk profiles.

Personalised service from a hard-working team

You’ll have a named account manager at Christie Insurance, based in London or Birmingham. You’ll have their direct number and email address, so there are no frustrating call centres and there’s no need to keep repeating yourself to different people. They’ll get to know your business very well and will take personal responsibility for everything to do with your insurance, including sorting out any queries or problems.

A tenacious claims team

You’ll also have a named claims manager, who will ensure your claim is settled quickly and successfully. We won’t be happy until you have your cheque in your hand.
