A leading independent insurance brokers has been shortlisted for a top industry award.

Carlisle-based H&H Insurance Brokers has been named as a finalist in the 2022 Insurance Times Awards in the Independent Broker of the Year category.

The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony held at London’s Grosvenor House on Thursday, December 8.

Paul Graham, Managing Director of H&H Insurance Brokers, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for such a prestigious industry award.

“It’s testament to the hard work of our team who go above and beyond to deliver a first class, personal service to our clients. As a regional broker, we’re making an impact on a competitive national market by launching new products and services which benefit our clients and reflect our ongoing commitment to leading the broking sector, not following it.”

H&H Insurance Brokers, which operates across the North of England, the Scottish Borders and Wales, arranges a broad portfolio of insurance for clients in all types of businesses across sectors including agriculture and rural, commercial, property, and tourism and hospitality.

Over the past year, the firm has launched the market leading H&H Distinction, a bespoke and exclusive brand developed in partnership with insurance giant Aviva, and partnered with financial planning specialists Sage Wealth Management to launch a wealth management service. Its new products and services complement its existing portfolio which includes a health and safety advice service, asset finance and specialist products for the agricultural and rural sector.

H&H Insurance Brokers expanded its business in the North East earlier this year, with the acquisition of Tynedale Insurance Services, and also strengthened its Wales operation by opening an office in Wrexham. In January, the firm was awarded the Feefo Platinum Trusted Service Award for its exceptional customer service for the third consecutive year.

The Insurance Times Awards recognise and celebrate excellence and innovation in general insurance across the UK.
