Welcome to our September newsletter!

Despite the warm weather we’ve had recently, autumn is well and truly here. We hope you are all safe, well, and enjoying the beautiful change in natural scenery that occurs at this time of year.
Read on for a few updates from our team…
Business Update
As there are no longer lockdown restrictions affecting the property market, the changes to our residential and commercial property insurance policies regarding unoccupied scenarios, as stated in our previous newsletter, will no longer be in place as of 01/10/2020. All brokers should from that date revert to the information in our policy wordings. If you are unsure about any issues that you feel may still be affected by COVID-19, please get in touch. Either contact your Business Development Manager directly or email
Changes to Our High Net Worth Policy
Our Private Client High Net Worth Home Insurance policy provides your customers with worldwide cover on an all risks basis.
Due to a change in the underwriting rules, we have increased the minimum premium to £750 (excluding IPT). This update applies to all new business and renewals. 
Alternatively, if you feel this is not the appropriate level of cover for your customer, we recommend looking at our Defaqto 5 Star rated Home Insurance either on a bedroom rated (£1,000,000 building and £100,000 contents as standard) or building sum insured basis. This insurance is for standard and non-standard property, and with many homeowners now working from home, it could provide them with the suitable level of cover they are looking for.
How Can We Help Improve Your Happiness?
As last week was International Week of Happiness at Work, we’ve been thinking about the importance of making sure you are happy with the service and products we provide. Not only do we mean this from a business perspective, but also from a more individual point of view. Sometimes we run into problems that can affect our mood, no matter how much we try to leave our thoughts of work behind once our computers are shut down for the day. We don’t want Vasek to feel like one of those problems, so we want you to know that we’re here to listen and we will try our best to sort any issues our end. 

Without knowing if there is a problem it can be hard to help, so we’re putting aside time specifically to listen to our brokers. 

From Monday 5th October to Friday 9th October 2020, 9:00am to 5:00pm, we are book marking this space in our diaries exclusively for you. We want to arrange meetings via video calls using whichever platform suits you best - just let us know your preference when you get in touch to book a time slot. 

Whether you have a quick question about one of our products or a query that needs some extra time to go through, we’re happy to make ourselves available. 

For anyone who is not free during this week, let us know and we can arrange a meeting on another date.
Here’s how to get in touch to book a meeting:
