Arc Legal Assistance (Arc Legal) has been appointed as Legal Expense Insurance provider for Intelligent Insurance, a new direct to consumer home insurance broker focused on providing competitive cover for both standard and non-standard risks.
Arc Legal is providing comprehensive family legal protection insurance, a legal helpline and access to discounted legal services on an optional basis as part of Intelligent Insurance’s insurance products for standard and non-standard homes. Typically this includes homes with thatched or flat roofs, subsidence and previous underpinning, and listed buildings. Intelligent Insurance is also including an optional dedicated Home Emergency insurance policy, which is provided by Inter Partner Assistance, an Arc Legal partner company.
Intelligent Insurance has been established by David Holden, Donna Swift and Philip Davies, formerly with Insurance Dialogue, a specialist insurance provider for the over 50s.
Richard Finan, Director of Arc Legal, said: “The ability to support new entrants in niche areas of the insurance market is an important part of our business model. Our flexible approach enables us to offer solutions to meet specific customer needs. We are delighted to be working with the Intelligent Insurance team to support their growth plans.”
“Intelligent Insurance was keen to develop an add-on offering that is feature rich and provides extensive benefits to customers. This reflects the move in the market by distributors to focus more on the customer service delivery of add-on products, rather than emphasis merely on price.”
David Holden, Managing Director of Intelligent Insurance said: “Our strategy is to provide products that offer comprehensive and relevant coverage to home owners, particularly for those with non-standard requirements or who have struggled to find insurance in the past. Being able to offer clients a range of complementary products and services that also meet their needs is an important part of our ability to add value.
“Arc Legal have the expertise and capabilities to respond very effectively to this requirement. Add-on products remain an integral part of home insurance packages, and Arc Legal have developed a Legal Expenses Insurance product that is tailored for our specific customer base whilst providing significant value.”
