Brunel Group has established a dedicated Professional Indemnity Insurance (PI) Brokerage with a focus on UK professional firms.

Led by Managing Director Jon Filer and Retail Broking Director Sam Scott, Brunel PI Brokers will be part of the successful Brunel Group, adding an exciting new professional indemnity broking proposition to the Group.

Brunel PI Brokers will operate from Brunel Group’s head office in Bristol and their London office in the heart of the world-leading London insurance market. Recruitment in these offices is already underway, with Carole Brown joining today and the team happy to consider conversations with talented individuals across the UK.

“I am extremely excited to launch Brunel PI Brokers and offer businesses across the UK SME and mid-corporate sectors a fresh alternative for their professional indemnity insurance” said Managing Director Jon Filer.

“Alongside Russell and Sam, we believe we can create a business that employees are proud to work for, that clients are attracted to place their business through, and insurers want to partner with. Professional indemnity has been through hard market conditions which is starting to ease and with hard work, experience and embracing new technologies we aim to dovetail a smooth quotation process with great results for our clients and exemplary ongoing service”.

Brunel Group has a Commercial Broker, Personal Lines Broker, Employee Benefits Broker, and Independent Financial Planning firm and the addition of a specialist PI broker will complement the full solution proposition for the group and its clients.

Group CEO Russell Lane commented, saying “Having started my own insurance career as a professional indemnity broker, it is great to be back in a market I know well.

I am delighted to welcome Jon and the team back to Brunel, having previously been part of the Group. Jon and the team bring an extensive knowledge of the professional indemnity sector and a proven track record of providing high quality service to their clients, which perfectly aligns with our Group’s ethos. Jon and Sam are hugely ambitious and driven individuals who genuinely care about their clients and strive to put them first. They bring in some much-needed competition in this space which makes this new venture a truly exciting time.

I believe they will offer something different to clients and are a special team who will deliver.

Brunel PI Brokers are ready to commence trading having received FCA authorisation on Friday.
