Find out more about Kingfisher and the people that drive us forward

We’ve rebranded to Kingfisher Insurance!

The Kingfisher is vibrant, alert and precise, it is unmistakable. At Kingfisher we match those qualities.

Kingfisher is one of the most enterprising Groups in the UK insurance industry. With over 50 years’ experience, Kingfisher is a wholly owned subsidiary of NSM Insurance Group, based in the USA, with financial backing from White Mountains Insurance Group. The Group is one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist insurance services. Our objective is to grow our existing portfolio of distinct and progressive insurance brands, all of which put customers at the heart of what they do.

We do this by continuing to develop and nurture our people, our brands and our business partnerships for the long-term. We want to develop new, innovative and leading insurance propositions for customers and to work tirelessly to improve life for them and colleagues.

Our mission

We consistently deliver value to our people, partners, and customers by putting them at the heart of our business and understanding our markets better than anyone else.

We nurture relationships and deliver long-term solutions by understanding when change is valuable, implementing creative responses and adapting quickly.

Our vision

To set ourselves apart as the UK’s most progressive and distinctive specialist insurance provider in our markets.
